WiSTEM2D program

Griffith has partnered with Johnson and Johnson on the Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing and Design (WiSTEM2D) program.  This global program aims to attract, retain and support women STEM2D undergraduate degrees.

As part of this project we have undergone a systematic literature review and co-design work with Griffith STEM2D women. The participants were challenged to design programs they would like to see that would help people like them stay enrolled in STEM2D programs.

Two WiSTEM workshops were also run in partnership with Johnson and Johnson.

Women in Technology

Griffith is a corporate sponsor of Women in Technology, the peak industry body for women in technology and life sciences within Queensland.

Staff members are entitled to membership under our corporate arrangement.
