Graduate Women Victoria has long supported STEM, the promotion of the education of girls in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. At its 2017 Annual General Meeting, GWV members endorsed a resolution extending this support to include the education of girls in Arts and Humanities: “That GWV take a stand for the future of girls and women in their individual careers and for the advancement of their communities by supporting and advocating for the idea of a cross-disciplinary educational curriculum currently expressed in the emerging acronym STEAM, an inclusive concept that rejects the idea of a “cultural divide” and recognises that knowledge of the humanities and the arts is integral to learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics – and vice versa.” This resolution has now been forwarded to the Victorian Minister for Education, James Merlino, asking him to use his influence to ensure that the curriculum taught in Victorian schools will be shaped by such contemporary thinking on the nature of knowledge.
