February 11th marks the inaugural ‘International Day of Women and Girls in Science’, a UN resolution to recognise and celebrate the work of woman in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). To commemorate the day, the UN hosted a High-Level Forum in their headquarters, rub by the Royal Academy of Science International Trust. On the back of this Hydronumerics' engineers Dr Patricia Okely (B. Eng, PhD), Priyanka Bhattacharya (B. IT) and Rachael Welling (B. Eng, B.Chem, Monash, in progress) got together to talk about studying and working in the field of Engineering.
Dr Okely writes 'Women are still very much a minority in STEM classrooms at school and universities, so I think an international recognition and celebration of the work of women in STEM is a great initiative, showing female students there is a large community of women out there working in STEM sectors that are making a valuable contribution to the world''. This sentiment is echoed by Rachael Welling, adding she has faced no barriers to studying Engineering; “I have been privileged to live in a very accepting country, and I know my experience is not universal”. Bengali native and our most recent starter at Hydronumerics, Priyanka feels that there is still much that parents and educators can do to raise awareness for STEM subjects for girls. Like Rachael ''I have faced no barriers in my chosen career''.
