Support Us

Our ability to improve the balance of gender equity in Australian science for the benefit of all people, depends on the commitment and support of our partners, sponsors and benefactors. By helping to increase the participation of under-represented groups in science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM) in Australia, you are helping Australia to innovate, create, diversify and grow its scientific achievements.

Your support will directly assist us to

  • Train project staff and peer reviewers in the management and implementation of the Athena SWAN program
  • Develop and host workshops with participating institutions, and convene panels of experts to run the intensive peer-review accreditation process
  • Promote the initiative and demonstrate Australia’s leadership to the world through a dedicated website, communications strategy and issues papers
  • Engage an independent organisation to evaluate the pilot, focusing on process, impacts and outcomes
  • Planning for the establishment of SAGE to become an independent organisation to run Athena SWAN in perpetuity.

You can help to champion the cause of women in STEMM by supporting SAGE in its pilot of the Athena SWAN Charter.
