A six-part podcast series exploring Australia’s greatest defence technologies and the inspirational people behind them. The series is hosted by mathematician and leading science communicator, Lily Serna, and presented by BAE Systems Australia.
Currently in Australia, less than 20% of Engineering students are female. And in the defence industry, female engineers make up less than 15% of the workforce.
Despite campaigns by governments and industry, women remain underrepresented in Science, Technology and Maths (STEM) careers and while progress has been made, there is much more work to do.
So how do we encourage more women into STEM?
Join Lily Serna as she meets some of the inspirational females making their mark in the defence industry, paving the way for future generations.
