Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine
Tuesday 5 March 2019
12.30pm - 2.30pm
Huntingdale Golf Club
Windsor Avenue, Oakleigh South
STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) skills play a crucial role in supporting our nation’s health, wealth, innovation capabilities and the global business environment. Despite over 50% of current STEMM graduates in Australia being women, only 16% of the workforce across all STEMM fields are women -and even fewer are in formal leadership roles.
The increasing convergence of the sciences in new innovation industries, the dominating role of data, the cult of entrepreneurship, and the vital role of the humanities in Australia’s growing knowledge economy demands all of the best minds at the table. But where are the women in science leadership and why are they leaving the arena in record numbers?
Join us and listen to Michelle Gallaher who has been an entrepreneur, allied health clinician, advocate and leader in the Australian life sciences and health sector for over 25 years. Michelle is the Telstra Victorian Business Woman of the Year 2017, Telstra Victorian Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 and was inducted into the Honour Roll for Women in 2018.
