STEM Sisters is home to a diverse group of female international students and female migrants committed to an intersectional approach for empowering women of Colour in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics fields.
Gender Bias is a massive contributor to the issues women face in trying to secure a STEM job. Additionally, racial bias plays an equally trying role for people of colour in western communities. The difficulty is elevated with the combination of the two, which is why Women of Colour in Stem need more support.
STEM Sisters acknowledges, recognises and respects the Ancestors, Elders and families of the Boonwurrung, Waddawurrung and Wurundjeri of the Kulin who are the traditional owners of land in Victoria.
