Professional Development

STA: Superstars of STEM

Scheme overview

Superstars of STEM aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM.  STA created Superstars of STEM to create a critical mass of celebrity Australian female scientists and technologists - role models for young women and girls – and to work towards equal representation in the media of women and men working in all fields in STEM.

Working with participants over two years, the program strives to:

  • Support 60 women employed in a range of roles in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to become highly visible public role models
  • Build the public profile of 60 women employed in STEM though training in public speaking, media and communicating with influence and through creating opportunities to practice their newly acquired skills
  • Empower participants to share their story and their work with general audiences by equipping them with advanced communications skills and an understanding of traditional media, social media and story-telling
  • Smash imposter syndrome and build confidence in a range of professional settings, participants will learn how to communicate with influence, in their workplaces, in the media and with leaders and politicians
  • Directly encourage young women and girls to study and stay in STEM, by program participants speaking with them in their schools and workplaces and by providing prominent public role models for them to aspire to

The first year of the two-year program will focus on professional development through a series of five workshops and the second year will focus on providing participants opportunities to practice their new skills through media and speaking opportunities in schools and on high profile stages. 

Benefits

The benefits of the program are valued at over $24,000 per participant, this includes comprehensive professional development workshops, travel and accommodation, event registration fees and professional services in the form of media, communications, and speaking engagement support.

Eligibility

Applicants are required to address the following selection criteria in a maximum of 200 words each:

  • Why do you want to join the program and build your profile? What makes you superstar material?
  • What strategies will you and your employer use to support your full participation in the program and the opportunities it brings?
  • Why is it important to communicate your work to the general public? How have you demonstrated a commitment to championing change for women in STEM?  How will your participation in the program help build on this?
  • What makes you stand out from the crowd?
  • What is the most significant mistake you’ve made in your professional life, how did you overcome it and what did you learn?

Participants will be selected to ensure geographic and discipline diversity in the program as well as representation from all career stages and a range of sectors, including public, private, and academic.
