About the event
Update: Eligibility expanded to anyone interested in helping to support women academics
Women are often under-represented at senior levels in universities and in various key disciplines. This is despite the fact that women are as well represented in terms of high school success and at junior levels.
The systemic hurdles, preconceived notions and other challenges faced by women in academia may lead to women feeling disengaged and unsupported, preventing them from excelling in their research careers.
What can we and others in power do to better support women researchers at the level of the department or university? What recruitment, flexible work arrangements or other practices and policies make a difference to the careers and lives of women researchers, and how can we help?
Professor Peter Taylor, a former ARC Laureate Fellow at the University of Melbourne (UoM) will share the experience of UoM’s School of Mathematics and Statistics when it advertised female-only continuing positions back in 2016.
Host of the Women in Research 'Small wins' webinar series, ARC Laureate Fellow and John Curtin Distinguished Professor Sharon Parker from Curtin University will share some of the research evidence around what organisational strategies make a difference to women’s experiences and careers.
You can submit your questions to the guests upon registrations. We hope to see you online!
