The University of Newcastle, Australia

Women in STEMM

Our University is proud of the many outstanding women achieving research excellence in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).

We are working hard to improve gender equity and diversity across the STEMM disciplines. We are very aware that women remain under-represented in leadership positions in particular.

In December 2018 we were among the first Australian universities to be awarded the Bronze Award under the SAGE Athena SWAN pilot, through Science in Australia Gender Equity. Under the pilot we will be working hard to address issues as outlined in our four year action plan.
