This paper examines the participation of women in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce in Australia. It begins by examining the relative participation of women in the STEM workforce, the number of undergraduate degree completions and the gender pay gap. It then examines some of the key issues, including: occupational and industrial segregation; stereotypes; career breaks and part-time employment; women leaving the STEM-related professions; lack of women in leadership roles; and discriminatory workplace practices.
