Science & Technology Australia is seeking candidates to join our newly-established Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee, to support our strategic focus on leading better EDI in the STEM sector through practical resources and strategic direction. This Committee is a permanent Committee of the STA Board, and replaces the EDI Working Group. Terms are for two years, and members are required to participate in a minimum of four Committee meetings per year and contribute to the formation of EDI resources and policy.
Candidates wishing to apply to join the Committee should be a member of, or employed by, an STA member organisation and address the following criteria in a statement that is no more than two pages:
- What is your perspective on equity, diversity and inclusion in STEM? Please also let us know if you publicly identify as a member of an under-represented group.
- What do you hope to achieve as a member of this committee? What does success look like to you?
- What is your relevant committee, board, and/or EDI experience?
- Please state your STA member organisation and confirm that this organisation is aware of your application to the EDI Committee.
