“From a scientific perspective, the voice is a must,” STA President Mark Hutchinson emphasises the importance of the voice for science.
If millions of Australians open our hearts and minds and vote ‘yes’, we will connect all of us – Australians both new and old – to the long story of our country.
In its submission to the Government’s Pathway to Diversity in STEM Draft Recommendations, Science & Technology Australia has urged bold thinking to tackle a lack of diversity in Australia’s workplaces. A new tax incentive to drive diversity in Australia’s largest companies could powerfully shift the dial on equality in the country’s workforce – including its pivotal STEM sector.
