Gender and diversity for professionals

Broadening the mix of those working in engineering, science, IT, architecture and other technical professions will be critical to realising our national innovation capability and productivity potential. To do this, we need to look at ways to tackle entrenched biases in work practices, provide flexible work arrangements that facilitate participation and inclusion, and address cultural impediments to attracting and retaining as diverse a workforce as possible. These are matters not only of justice and equity but of labour market supply and improving the nation’s bottom line.

Professionals Australia is committed to promoting the work of women in the professions, encouraging young women to study and develop STEM skills and supporting the retention of women in the professional workforce.

The Hamer Scholarships Program | Scholarships & Fellowships | Grants, Tenders & Awards | Department of State Development, Business and Innovation
As part of the Victorian International Engagement Strategy the Victorian Government has established the Hamer Scholarships, a language and cultural immersion program designed to build the Asia-engagement capabilities of Victorians and help strengthen cultural awareness between Victoria and Asia.

The program provides scholarships for Victorians each year to undertake intensive language study at nominated universities or institutions in China, Indonesia, Japan and Korea.

Worth $10,000 each for China and Indonesia, or $15,000 each for Japan and Korea, the scholarships are a boost for Asia-focused skillsets and will create business, cultural and educational representatives for Victoria in those countries.

Spyware's role in domestic violence
[trigger warning: domestic violence]

"In a Victorian study last year, 97 per cent of domestic violence workers reported that perpetrators were using mobile technologies to monitor and harass women in domestic situations.

"Two-thirds of the 46 victims interviewed said they were made to feel like they were being watched or tracked, yet less than half told somebody about it.

"One victim's partner was monitoring her emails after hacking her account and another had her Facebook page saturated with graphic information by a former partner. One woman was tracked to a refuge using a GPS-based smartphone application."

The Australian Law Reform Commission is currently running an inquiry into privacy laws in the digital era. [link:]

Taking out tokenism: Why some people are changing their minds on quotas
Last year, the company (which has 2000 employees) hired 200 graduates worldwide. Sixty per cent of those graduates were women. “It is interesting but more than anything else, it is a psychological change,” Stephens says. “In Australia last year, more than 50 per cent of our hires overall [not just graduates] were women. Three years earlier, we said that wasn’t possible, that it couldn’t be done.” Related -
