Draft Recommendations on Improving Diversity in STEM


Draft recommendations produced by the independent Diversity in STEM Review Panel have been released for further consultation to help improve diversity and inclusion in STEM-related careers.

The draft recommendations are made following a nation-wide engagement campaign to identify ways to address systemic and structural barriers limiting STEM participation.

The panel held hundreds of discussions with people and communities across the country and is now seeking further feedback on their recommendations to help increase participation of historically underrepresented groups of people in STEM.

The panel will consider all feedback to develop the final report to government and is keen to receive examples of successful initiatives and evidence or data on effective approaches to improve diversity and inclusion.

The Diversity in STEM Review Panel’s draft recommendations can be found here: https://consult.industry.gov.au/diversityinstem2

To accompany the draft recommendations, the panel is also releasing an evaluation of existing Women in STEM programs in the Industry and Science portfolio, available here: https://www.industry.gov.au/publications/women-stem-initiatives-evaluation-report

The consultation closes on 8 September, and the panel will deliver its final report to Government later this year.
