Tackling gender inequality through a global pandemic

Category In the Press

By Dr Emily Yap

Dr Emily Yap, a committee member of the Women’s Research Engineer Network (WREN) and research engineer at the University of Wollongong Industry 4.0 Hub, writes about the importance of women role models in engineering and how her role in WREN and in her professional role tackles the leaky pipeline.

“In a time where the world is challenged with a global pandemic that has worsened pre-existing gender inequalities, it is even more critical now to put women and girls at the centre of efforts to recover from COVID-19.”
