Science 50:50


NSW Minister for Women Pru Goward will join high school students, leading female scientists and industry representatives tomorrow at a Women in Science Symposium at The Australian National Maritime Museum co-hosted by UNSW.


The Science 50:50 initiative has a simple premise – since half of the population is female, why not also half the scientists and technologists?


More than 200 female high school students heard inspiring stories from leading female scientists and industry representatives at the Sydney launch of UNSW's Science 50:50 initiative.
