Go Girl Goes Global!

In April, we partnered Creative Innovation 2019 Asia Pacific to support of the development of STEM and Human Intelligence 2.0 skills in women across Australia. We met with Chris Skipper-Conway, Chair of Victorian ICT for Women, facilitator of Go Girl Go for IT; Tania de Jong AM, Founder and Executive Producer of Creative Innovation Global and Felicity Furey, Founder of the Power of Engineering.

The speakers for the event were Emma Martinho-Truswell (co-founder and COO of Oxford Insights) and Kathleen Richardson (Professor of Ethics and Culture of Robots) and AI at De Montfort University. The main focus of the event was about sharing expert insight into the future of science, AI, technology, ethics, leadership and innovation.

Encouraging more girls to seek a career in STEM

Women represent at least half of the working population in Australia and this is a trend that will likely stay put in the near or distant future.

In 2018, the number of girls under the age of 14 almost equal the number of boys. As such, to maintain the level of productivity in the workforce, it has become increasingly important to balance the diversity scale between men and women, across all fields.

Emphasis has been placed in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as indicators highlight a greater disparity in gender in that field.
