The Young Indigenous Women's STEM Academy is delivered by CSIRO in partnership with Indigenous employment organisation CareerTrackers, who will work with the students to ensure their STEM path is tailored to their personal goals and their social and emotional wellbeing supported.
The Academy is proudly funded by the National Indigenous Australians Agency.
CSIRO is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
With more than 35 years’ experience in delivering innovative education initiatives designed to boost Australia’s science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) literacy, CSIRO has focus on building teacher capacity and promoting STEM career pathways by delivering relevant and real-life STEM learning resources and experiences in and out of the classroom.
CareerTrackers is a national non-profit social enterprise with the goal of creating pathways and support systems for Indigenous students to graduate from university with high marks, industry experience and a bright professional future.
CareerTrackers provides world-class training and support to students throughout their academic career. Students are connected to the largest network of emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander professionals in Australia.
