Inspiring STEM Stories is an initiative to showcase STEM career stories through an online library of engaging videos. At Women in Technology WA our tagline is “if you can see her, you can be her” and this is especially important when representing the diversity of careers open to young people. By bringing visibility to the variety of STEM careers, and the pathways to these careers, we can empower the next generation to start on their own STEM journey.
Are you a woman working in STEM? We are calling on YOU to submit a video about your own career journey.
1. Take a look at some of our video resources to get you started
2. Create and submit your video (submission link coming soon)
3. Inspire the next generation for a future in STEM
Your video will be featured in our online Inspiring STEM Stories video gallery and may be featured in a showcase reel.
As part of this initiative we have put together a simple guide to making your own video that covers a few key technical aspects, and tips on how to craft an engaging narrative. You can watch the videos here:
You can refer to these summary sheets and download them for future reference.
