Girls in STEM

We are passionate about helping increase girls’ engagement with STEM. We run programs that showcase diverse career possibilities, raise the profile of female role models, and increase the opportunities for girls to get hands-on with STEM.

Curtin STEM Stars

As part of Curtin’s commitment to the Athena Swan Charter and improving equity and diversity, we are celebrating our Women in STEMM.

Read the personal stories of academics and researchers about what attracted them to a career in STEM, or watch videos to hear how six women rebelled against the status quo to pursue excellence.

A series of news stories puts the spotlight on women in the Faculty of Health Sciences. From researching the health-giving properties of spider venom, to using meditation as a treatment tool to assist word retrieval, their stories are diverse.
