Program to push for gender equality in STEMM fields

Dr Bernadette Fitzgibbon
Monash University has been selected as an inaugural member of the Science in Australia Gender Equity pilot (SAGE) of the Athena SWAN Charter in Australia.

The SAGE pilot, an initiative by the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), is the first Australian trial of the Athena SWAN gender equity accreditation program.

The program is an evaluation and accreditation framework to help institutions improve their gender equity practices and gender representation and retention in science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM) disciplines.

Dr Bernadette Fitzgibbon (MAPrc neuroscientist) was interviewed together with Professor Nalini Joshi (applied mathematician) by ABC Radio on the initiative. See: www.abc.net.au/am/content/2015/s4313205.htm
