The Women Researchers’ Network (WRN) was established in 2013 to enable RMIT female academic staff and research fellows at all career stages to connect with each other, share opportunities, access resources and participate fully in positive, active professional development.
In this session, several senior RMIT researchers will speak about their work in the network and the support it provides.
Professor Kay Latham (Dean, STEMM, Diversity & Inclusion) will speak about the Athena Swan project, history, bronze accreditation and first cygnet to Silver accreditation. Professor Matt Duckham (Geographic Information Science) will speak about the support RMIT offers for career interruption through the Career Re-ignite program. Professor Sylvia Urban (School of Science and leader of the Marine and Terrestrial Natural Product (MATNAP) research group) will speak about the WATTLE leadership program, which supports emerging leaders at RMIT. And finally, Dr Catherine Earl (School of Communication and Design) will speak about the River Cities Network and supporting female academics at RMIT Vietnam.
