Meet the South Australian women who have excelled in STEM careers and are passionate about raising the profile of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), particularly within the water industry, offer the opportunity to engage in some of the most exciting realms of discovery and be at the forefront of technological innovation.

Increasing opportunities for women in these fields is essential to the South Australian economy and to achieve gender equality.

By attracting and retaining more women in the STEM workforce we will maximise the State’s innovation, creativity, and competitiveness.

Scientists, technicians, engineers and mathematicians are working to solve some of the most difficult challenges of our time, and engineers design many of the things we use daily.

Join us for the second Women in Water Breakfast for 2017 and hear from some of the prominent leaders in STEM in South Australia who will share their experiences, challenge the myths and stereotypes around women in STEM, explore what the future STEM workforce will look like and how we can encourage women to pursue STEM careers.

Our key speakers include:

Dr Leanna Read - Chief Scientist for South Australia

Karen Simpson - Senior Manager Laboratory Services, Australian Water Quality Centre

Dr Claudia Szabo - Associate Dean Diversity and Inclusion, University of Adelaide
