Prof. Tom Welton Speaking Tour 2017: Going for Gold – Just the Beginning

In January 2017 SAGE is pleased to sponsor the visit of Professor Tom Welton from Imperial College, London. Professor Welton will be presenting at SAGE member institutions throughout Australia on his experience with Athena SWAN in the UK.

The Imperial College, Department of Chemistry was awarded a Gold Athena SWAN award for good practice in supporting academic women in September 2013.  Chemistry was the first Department at Imperial to receive a Gold award and was one of the first four university departments across the UK to win an Athena SWAN Gold Award.

Tom Welton will discuss the work done in the Chemistry Department at Imperial College on valuing diversity and enabling all of the department’s members to reach their full potential, regardless of who they are. He will ask the audience to be actively involved in the discussion, to bring their own experiences and ideas and to steer the conversation into the areas that are most important to them.
