They are working to make a difference to the wellbeing of individuals and communities locally, nationally and internationally.

 

To support this trend and encourage further innovation from and collaboration between women in STEM fields, the World Science Festival Brisbane, and the Queensland Government’s Office for Women and Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist are proud to present the 2017 Queensland Women in STEM Prize.

Increasing the awareness and understanding of the great science taking place in Queensland is one of the key priorities for the Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist through their Engaging Queenslanders in Science strategy and the Office for Women through the Queensland Women’s Strategy. The Queensland Women in STEM competition aims to identify those female STEM professionals who are not only making a positive contribution to their individual field, but are also engaging with and communicating their practice to a broader community.
