To mark the day, organisations worldwide held many different events, including ACEMS. One of our events was a panel discussion titled, "The Road Ahead for Women in STEM", as we explored efforts to increase diversity in maths and science. It featured three top female leaders in Australian academia.
They talked about what leaders could do, both men and women, to help their organisations get more women into STEM, keep them there, and why they that’s such a good thing.
