3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
This report shows the progress of women in senior positions has stalled over the past 15 years despite encouraging improvements in participation at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. There are strong arguments for renewed focus on women in science in terms of productivity, innovation and social equity, as this report goes to press, molecular biologist Professor Elizabeth Blackburn has been confirmed as the first Australian woman Nobel laureate (6 October 2009). That such individual achievement is possible when the progress of the majority of Australian women hoping to make careers in science, engineering or technology related fields has stalled is cause for cautious optimism.

The results indicated an exceedingly diverse market, one in which practically any business can find the funds necessary to start and operate a business
