WiT has been providing learning and development programs for women in STEM for more than 20 years – from practical workplace skills, to our Board Readiness™ Certificate, which was the first of its kind in Australia.

Our programs provide the practical skills women need to be satisfied, successful and to advance in a STEM career, regardless of their specific discipline or industry.
