A RE­GION­ALLY-BASED STEM or­gan­i­sa­tion that has a woman at the helm has been listed in the Aus­tralian Fi­nan­cial Re­view’s Fast 100 com­pa­nies, an­nounced to­day.

Re­gional En­vi­ro­science joins the ranks of pre­vi­ously listed com­pa­nies that have gone on to be­come house­hold names, in­clud­ing Boost Juice, Car­man’s Fine Foods, Lonely Planet, and We­b­jet.

With Dubbo en­tre­pre­neur Juliet Duffy at the helm, Re­gional En­vi­ro­science is an Oc­cu­pa­tional and En­vi­ron­men­tal Hy­giene con­sul­tancy, de­tect­ing and mon­i­tor­ing a range of con­tam­i­nants in the air, wa­ter, soil and ma­te­ri­als.

The Fast 100 is ranked by av­er­age rev­enue growth over four years. Re­gional En­vi­ro­science now has of­fices in Dubbo, Wagga, Tam­worth, and Ma­roochy­dore, Queens­land, and em­ploys more than 25 peo­ple.

Ms Duffy de­scribed it as “typ­i­cally a male-dom­i­nated in­dus­try”. The En­vi­ro­science team in­cludes two young women who are both sci­ence qual­i­fied and Li­cenced As­bestos Asses­sors, men­tored by Ms Duffy.

“Be­ing a woman in STEM is not with­out its chal­lenges... how­ever it has never re­ally been a prob­lem (for us).”
