Babcock has continued its partnership with the University of Adelaide to support more women into STEM journeys such as the numerous careers we now have available.
Babcock’s System Engineer Imogen Larcombe met Adelaide University student Ashleigh Geiger, who is studying Biochemistry and Genetics and is currently doing a PHD in Genome Engineering, to deliver the good news.
“An education built on the platform of STEM opens an exciting array of current and future job opportunities,” Ms Larcombe said.
“It is fantastic to be part of a company who supports young women such as Ashleigh to conduct their important studies.”
The Women in STEM Careers program (“WiSC”) equips UA’s architecture, science, technology, engineering and mathematics students with leadership, resilience and entrepreneurial tools and skills that will allow them to thrive and succeed in their field of choice.
WiSC is developed around two main components, personal and professional development, comprising workshops delivered to up to 100 students over the course of a year, with industry partners involved through multiple channels.
It is the fourth year running that Babcock have supported the program.
