International Women's Day 2022

In light of International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March, we’re celebrating the remarkable women who have been part of our Inspiring Stories in the last year.

Each of our speakers are asked if they could change one thing, what would it be? Here are some of their responses:

If I could change one thing, it would be implementing reporting and monitoring on equity, diversity and inclusion at the univeristy, says Jane Gunn Ngaree Blow talks about the importance of collaboration, not consultation when advocating for others

If I could change one thing, Jennifer Philip says implementing quotas would level the playing field for women at the university. If I could change one thing, I would set up targets for participation, visibility and inclusion at the university. (Rita Hardiman)

Additional IWD 2022 events

Across the University, there are a range of lectures featuring  impressive women leaders as well as the SAGE Intersectionality Walks, open to all University staff and students.

Three engaging, interactive, online sessions will be hosted by SAGE (Science in Australia Gender Equity). Places are limited so sign-up quickly but don’t be disheartened if you miss out – further sessions will soon be available in TrainME.

The sessions are facilitated by Tamzen Armer from Science in Australia Gender Equity(SAGE). SAGE is a not-for-profit public company founded by the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering.

SAGE is the only national gender equity and diversity program of its kind in Australia. It achieves meaningful systemic and cultural change within organisations using the proven Athena Swan accreditation framework.
