Applications are opening soon for the next round of Superstars of STEM. This two-year program provides training, support and opportunities for participants to build their public profile and access media and speaking opportunities.
Superstars of STEM aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM. STA created Superstars of STEM to create a critical mass of celebrity Australian female scientists and technologists - role models for young women and girls – and to work towards equal representation in the media of women and men working in all fields in STEM.
Over five years we will have equipped 150 female scientists and technologists with advanced communication skills and provided them with genuine opportunities to use these skills – in the media, on the stage and in speaking with decision makers.
The upcoming program runs for 2 years from January 2019-December 2020
Applications for this round of Superstars of STEM will open on 15 August 2018 and close on 23 September 2018.
