Women represent half of the population, but you wouldn’t know it if you looked at your average STEM office. In technology fields for example, just 28 per cent of IT workers in Australia and 23 per cent in New Zealand are female, which is crazy considering that by 2023 there’s predicted to be 3.5 million job openings in cyber security alone.

Luckily thanks to initiatives like The Hatchery’s Public Sector Women in STEM Leadership Summit, emerging female leaders are being nurtured and celebrated – and the opportunities for career growth are huge.
