The Northern Territory Government is committed to developing the next generation of STEAMM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, and medicine) enabled entrepreneurial innovators in the Territory.

The purpose of the Women’s Innovation Network NT (WINN) is to increase diversity and gender equity in innovation and STEAMM through retention, attraction and elevation of women.

The network is working towards the following outcomes:

  • representation of women in innovation and STEAMM in the Territory is strengthened
  • a pipeline of opportunities and pathways to encourage and attract girls and young women into innovation where STEAMM is embedded
  • women are empowered to engage with the Territory’s innovation ecosystem and pursue entrepreneurial opportunities
  • availability and visibility of support and development opportunities are increased.
