Today millions of women around the world will unite to recognise International Women’s Day.
The UN Australia’s International Women’s Day theme for 2023 is ‘Cracking the Code: Innovation for a gender equal Future’
“Our gender equal future is only possible with more women in leadership, financially empowered and able to fully participate – a future where all women are safe and free from violence, at the heart of decision making for inclusive, educated and innovative communities.” Simone Clarke, CEO UN Women Australia
The importance of women in STEM in innovating and designing new technologies that close the digital gap cannot be under emphasised.
