ClusterTech has a strong obligation towards social responsibility and is an advocate of gender equality in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). For many years, ClusterTech has funded the ClusterTech Primary School in Gansu, China, and provided student scholarships and staff training. Recently, ClusterTech sponsored “The ClusterTech Prize” in the School of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Sydney, which has the aim of encouraging outstanding female students in STEM.
In 2021, the prize was awarded to Miss Zhang Chenxi, the top female student in 2020. Miss Zhang graduated from University of Sydney with a bachelor’s degree in Power Engineering and University Medal. She is now undertaking her doctorate degree at the same university and we have high expectations for her future. Regarding gender inequality, Miss Zhang believes that female scholars like herself can play an important role in encouraging the next generation of women to study STEM subjects.
Women remain underrepresented in the areas of STEM, the reasons being complex and not easy to address. As a company, ClusterTech is committed to improving opportunities for women through The ClusterTech Prize, other scholarships, its hiring processes, and a positive working environment.
