Become a Women in STEM Decadal Plan Champion

The Women in STEM Decadal Plan outlines six opportunities for all stakeholders—government, academia, industry, education and the broader community—have the power to act and create change. Together we can create a STEM ecosystem that attracts, retains and progresses girls and women.

As a Women in STEM Decadal Plan Champion you will submit a response aligning you or your organisation’s activities towards gender equity with any of the six opportunities identified in the decadal plan. The response will then be shared on the champion page and help the Academy to celebrate progress, identify gaps and create a community of interest. You will need to revisit your response after 12 months and submit a reflection on your progress.

Our response guide will help you to develop your response, and you can view other responses on the champion page.
