Smith named Superstar of STEM

Justine Smith, FRANZCO, PhD, FARVO, has been identified as one of 30 of Australia’s most dynamic female scientists and technologists to participate in the 2017 Superstars of STEM program. The new program was developed by Science & Technology Australia (STA) to address the systemic barriers and historic biases that contribute to the alarming loss of women from STEM careers by increasing equal representation in the media of men and women in STEM.

Founded on the belief that visibility matters in achieving equality, the program will sponsor a number of workshops for Superstars of STEM to advance their communication skills. This will include media training, meetings with decision-makers and opportunities to showcase their work.

The program is operating on a groundswell principle: from the media consumer’s point of view, there will be an increasing awareness that more and more women working across the breadth of STEM are appearing in all sections of the Australian media, from news and variety shows to social media and public events, from magazines to opinion pages and talkback radio.

Smith, the Matthew Flinders Distinguished Professor and research strategic professor of eye & vision health at Flinders University, is an ARVO past president and currently serves as the association’s executive vice president.
