Advancing Equity | CMP Consulting Group

The Gems in STEM program by CMP Consulting Group aims to tackle the declining participation in STEM subjects and careers, particularly among female students. Through interactive workshops and industry professional presentations, the program educates and inspires students about engineering and sustainability careers in the water industry.

Societal Value Created

  1. Encouraging more students, especially females, to pursue STEM fields by providing early exposure and breaking stereotypes about engineering careers.
  2. Addressing the crisis in the STEM talent pipeline, which risks Australia’s ability to deliver critical infrastructure projects.

Business Value Created

  1. Attracting and retaining high-quality professionals at CMP who are passionate about addressing the STEM crisis.
  2. Upskilling employees’ presentation and advocacy skills through delivering the program to large student audiences.
  3. Fostering human connections by having employees share their personal career stories.
