In December 2018 SAGE reached a key milestone – when 15 of Australia’s higher education and research institutions were recognised for their progress in addressing gender inequity and supporting greater diversity and inclusion – at the inaugural SAGE Awards Gala Dinner held in the Great Hall at Parliament House in Canberra.
The SAGE Athena SWAN Bronze Institutional Awards were conferred by Nicolle Flint, MP for Boothby, representing Prime Minister Scott Morrison, in attendance with other Government Ministers, parliamentarians and senior government officials, as well as other dignitaries including the CEO of Advance HE (UK), Ms Alison Johns.
Ms Del Irani – award-winning journalist and TV presenter – was Master of Ceremonies at the Awards Dinner. Del has hosted shows on Australian and international television including ABC News, BBC World News and is currently a presenter on ABC News’ national breakfast show.
