In February 2020, 11 SAGE member institutions were recognised for their achievements in advancing gender equity and diversity in Australia’s higher education and research sector.
The Athena SWAN Institutional Bronze Awards were celebrated and conferred on SAGE member institutions from both Cohort 2 (announced in September 2019) and Cohort 3 on 20 February 2020.
The SAGE Awards were conferred by SAGE Executive Director Dr Wafa El-Adhami and Chief Executive of Advance HE, Alison Johns.
The event was attended by leaders across the Australian STEMM sector, including Vice Chancellors/Directors and Chief Executive Officers from SAGE participating institutes and STEMM industries, Fellows of the leading science academies, as well as representatives of the diversity and equity sector.
The Awards Dinner 2020 took place on 20 February 2020 at the Adelaide Town Hall, one of Australia’s significant icons that has attracted famous visitors.
