Lately there’s been a large focus on women in STEM, or more so, the lack of women in these fields. The Australian Government has created a 2020 Action Plan to enable STEM in education, support women in STEM careers and make women in STEM more visible. Empowering women to follow STEM careers starts with the foundational education in schools.
On this specific day of acknowledgement, we celebrate females for their work in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic fields. February 11th marks this wonderful day for women all around the world. Let’s be sure to thank and support them for what they have contributed to society and the change they are making for generations to come.
Last week I had the chance to chat to up coming aviation star and go getter, Ellen Polacsek. Ellen is a part of Women in Aviation – The Australian Chapter (WAI), an amazing organisation that Co Gear has previously collaborated with - creating a scholarship to support aviation students. We absolutely applaud them for the support, encouragement and opportunities that they give women to advance in the aviation and aerospace industries.
