Inspiring Female Leaders in STEM

Rosie Attwell's career transition went from contemporary art to joining CSIRO's world-leading robotics team.

Her colourful career path demonstrates the value of diverse skills and perspectives in STEM roles.

After exploring various industries, including contemporary art, banking, and startups, she found her transferrable skills were the perfect fit and now brings her innovative approach as a Technical Program Manager in the world-leading robotics team.


“In some of the more corporate environments I’ve worked in, you feel like you need to conceal who you are. The celebration of the individual and that celebration of being different at CSIRO is something truly special.”

— Rosie Attwell, 


As one of 11 women from a team of 58, Rosie is passionate about building diversity and inclusion within the STEM field.

Rosie runs monthly gatherings for female managers, scientists, and engineers in her team to connect and support each other.
