We live in a time where gender inequality and subtle forms of discrimination still persist for academic women. Issues such as disparities in pay and lower representation in senior leadership roles, along with expectations to perform traditionally gendered tasks, continue to prevent women from receiving equal appreciation and opportunities at work.

While dismantling these barriers require meaningful and systemic change within the organisation and broader society, having a supportive network of fellow women can make a world of difference. There are a variety of ways that women can support each other in the workplace, but how do we effectively help fellow women researchers to thrive in their academic careers?

In this upcoming webinar, lead of the Women in Research initiative, ARC Laureate Fellow and John Curtin Distinguished Professor Sharon Parker (Curtin University) will present evidence-based, actionable strategies to support and champion women in academia.

She will be joined by two female ARC Laureate Fellows, Scientia Professor Jane McAdam and Scientia Professor Martina Stenzel (UNSW) who will share their insights and practical guidance.
