The Awards shines a light on the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and advocacy for STEM and recognises excellence among those who strive to make a positive difference in their communities. This year we have included the ARTS industry in the categories, which demonstrates exceptional use of creative arts in the STEM fields.
“Part of bridging the gender disparity is us taking the opportunity to celebrate women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics who against all odds are making outstanding contributions within their respective fields,” Says Rumbi Maisva, Head of STEAM at the Womandla Foundation. The Womandla Women in STEAM Award winners will be announced on the morning of 28 August 2021 at the virtual award ceremony.
