The long awaited Women in the Science Research Workforce report is out and available in full for members.
Outstanding women scientists are achieving at the highest levels, obtaining advanced scientific qualifications and taking key roles in the fields of science and technology. But across the board we all know that we are not making the most of the nation’s natural talent, and that talented women are being lost to science every day.
This report makes a very important contribution to the evidence base, and provides a valuable follow-up to the original 2009 FASTS report, Women in Science in Australia: Maximising Productivity, Diversity and Innovation.
It focuses on developing clear actions and strategies to achieve organisational and sectoral change.
