The Warren Centre launched its Inclusion² program earlier this month, with a drinks reception at the University of Sydney Business School featuring many of Australia’s top and upcoming female STEM leaders.
Jo Burston of Job Capital and Birds gave a speech on the value of women in business and entrepreneurship, followed by an introduction to the need for the Inclusion² program and an introduction to its aims from The Warren Centre’s Alexandra Harrington.
Inclusion² is the first comprehensive whole of career approach to support women in STEM. We are currently losing female talent at every stage of the STEM pipeline. In this period of rapid technological change, society requires innovative and adaptive STEM solutions delivered by a diverse cohort of industry leaders.
The unique three-part program has been designed to foster female entrepreneurs and address critical points in the career development of women in STEM. With specific programs for women at school through to senior leadership, Inclusion² is the first comprehensive whole-of-supply-chain approach.
