Gender inequality remains deeply entrenched in every society. In 2021 women still face discrimination, they lack access to equal opportunities and equal pay in the workplace and are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes. Women make up 51% of the population, yet women make up less than 20% of all the engineers across all areas of the engineering workforce. If we look at women of colour, indigenous men and women or people with disabilities, they contribute less than 5% of the engineering workforce together.


Change the way you look at women’s success

With the support of industry and business in the greater Gladstone Region the Empowering Women event creates an opportunity for inclusion, drawing together people to empower, inspire, motivate and benefit individuals, business and communities towards advancing gender equity. Individually we are all responsible for our own thought and actions.

Together we can break the bias in our communities, in our workplace, in our schools, colleges and universities.

In recent decades, women in Australia have made significant strides towards equality. At universities, in the workplace, in boardrooms and in government, a growing number of women have taken on leadership roles, forging pathways for other women and girls to follow.
