Catalysing Gender Equity 2020, Be part of the solution. Adelaide Convention Centre 201-21 February 2020

Registrations are now open for Catalysing Gender Equity 2020 on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 February at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Catalysing Gender Equity 2020 will bring representatives of research, industry, education and government organisations to celebrate success, showcase impact and growth potential, highlight key action areas and foster collaboration to achieve change, all guided by the six opportunities of the Women in STEM Decadal Plan.

Delegates will hear from inspiring speakers and participate in a variety of workshops, seminars, gallery submissions and panels, each focused on progressing and implementing strategic recommendations and opportunities in the decadal plan.

The event is a unique opportunity to connect leaders and contributors from across the STEM ecosystem. This conference will be a key national moment to advance gender equity in STEM, while strengthening collaborations, building new networks and sharing evidence-based best practice.

The registration fee for the full two days is $450 and a reduced rate of $350 is available for students (undergraduate, PhD and masters), not-for-profit organisations, and small businesses of less than 15 employees.

In addition, all delegates can join SAGE in celebrating recipients of the Athena SWAN Institutional Bronze Awards at the SAGE Awards Dinner on 20 February being held at the Adelaide Town Hall. Dinner tickets are $165 per person.

Opportunities to support attendance
