The Innovators’ Tea Party Inc. is a Perth-based, volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation which aims to create gender equity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. We do this by linking successful female scientists, engineers and innovators with high-school students in order to promote STEM-focussed careers. Our 500+ mentors come from a range of backgrounds and work in a variety of industries, and all of them are passionate about promoting their field to future innovators.
We run two main types of events; speed-networking events with one-on-one mentorship with female STEM professionals and career information nights for students, parents and teachers. Each event is aimed at breaking down stereotypes of who can have a career in STEM and how you get there, as well as showcasing the incredible breadth of STEM careers available in Western Australia.
