Why we should celebrate International Day of Girls and Women in Stem

Girls and women in STEM

February 08, 2021

On this specific day of acknowledgement, we celebrate females for their work in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic (STEM) 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.

This day exists so that women in Stem can come together, support each other, and share their journeys. We can then support them by educating ourselves, our children and resharing their success stories. Days like this allows people to find a group of like-minded individuals who honour and lift one another up.

Co Gear supports women in Stem through our inclusive workwear range that caters to women in industrial trades and vocations. This includes women in engineering and other hands on jobs.

To celebrate the International Day of Girls and Women in Stem, we would like to acknowledge and introduce to you the 2020 Queensland Women in Stem winner, Samantha Nixon. Watch this video to find out what she's passionate about in her career!

“Stem is so exciting because it allows you to bring in your creative thinking, and your critical thinking, to solve really complex problems, with new and different ways that people haven’t thought of before” – Samantha Nixon.

Share this with an amazing woman that works in a Stem field, or an aspiring leader to be. Let’s all play a part in encouraging inclusiveness and gender balance within the Stem community.
