The Women in STEM Careers (WiSC) Program connects high-achieving STEM students with industry partners. We are currently seeking partners to continue our program into the future.

WiSC provides professional development opportunities to women studying STEM, while acting as a talent identification pipeline program for participating organisations. Through industry partnership, the program promotes diversity and inclusion in the workplace. This program enables early identification of future talent for graduate employment opportunities.
