Women represent a both a significant and often under-utilised resource in the national economy. The Australian Government and Universities recognise the importance of increasing the representation of women in key leadership positions in the public and private sectors and particularly in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – STEM – areas wherein women have not traditionally studied and built careers. The Science Women in Leadership Webinar aims to address this issue.
Science Women in Leadership Panel:
- Professor Sarah Brough (Panel Chair), UNSW Astrophysicist
- Professor Lisa Kewley, Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics and ARC Laureate Fellow
- Professor Fiona Stapleton, UNSW Scientia Professor, School of Optometry and Vision Science and SAGE Athena Academic Lead
- Associate Professor Lisa Williams, UNSW Associate Dean for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for the Faculty of Science
In this special event you will hear Sarah Brough, Lisa Kewley, Fiona Stapleton, and Lisa Williams discuss empirically-based strategies for increasing the number of women in senior roles across education and STEM focused industries. Furthermore, they will highlight various research and industry examples that show how to effectively increase female leadership positions in the workplace.
The Women in Leadership - Science Webinar is open to all
