Leading the way for women in STEM

Elise Kellet from Dickson College has been selected to represent Australia at the London International Youth Science Forum.

The forum brings together around 500 students from 75 countries, as well as leading scientists from around the world.

Elise is a member of the YWCA Young Women in Leadership Group and she's passionate about increasing the number of women entering Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

“It’s important to ensure a greater number of women are supported and encouraged to enter the fields from a young age,” she says.
