Athena SWAN UK Chief Executive David Ruebain talks about the slow progress being made for women in STEMM.

Women at the top of their fields say bias is a real problem, and needs a structured approach to change.

Mark Zuckerberg is planning to take two months paternity leave. Did you know that, aside from looking into maternity and parental leave patterns and outcomes for women, our SAGE Pilot participants will examine paid parternity leave polices and uptake across STEMM departments? They'll also analyse what other policies and programs will improve gender equity options for men who want to increase their caring responsibilities within their families.

"Most researchers sign a 12 month contract – sometimes less. Senior investigators with Fellowships may receive a contract for the duration of their fellowship, but few, if any, are considered “permanent employees”.  This is not unique to scientific research, but this short-term, high-risk career path has serious consequences for all researchers, particularly women in science." Dr Jeffrey Craig and Dr Marguerite Evans-Galea

As you may already know, here in California we’re experiencing the driest winter in recorded history. I figured now is as good as time as any to being a “Best” list that I’m…

Focusing on equality of outcomes not only benefits the women and men who work within the organisation, it also leads to improved organisational performance. Despite the fact that women form almost half of those in Australia with post-graduate qualifications in chemistry or biological sciences (Census 2011) women are underrepresented in senior roles. This is not due to lack of talent. Find how leaders can address this on the Women in Science Research Workforce

Women in the Science Research Workforce: Identifying and Sustaining the Diversity Advantage

Women comprise more than half of science PhD graduates and early career researchers, but just 17% of senior academics in Australian universities and research institutes. In between, women scientists are squeezed out of science careers by systemic and inherently inequitable structural barriers. Click through to read what SAGE is doing to improve the science and technology sectors.

Studies show that women researchers are squeezed out of science careers by structural barriers.
