UTS has been selected as one of 33 Australian universities and research organisations to participate in a pilot program to improve the promotion and retention of women and gender minorities in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).  

The program will enable UTS to build upon our ongoing work to further promote gender equity and create an inclusive teaching and learning culture.  You can get more information about the SAGE Athena SWAN Charter here.  If you would like to speak to someone about the UTS Pilot contact Professor Elizabeth Sullivan, or Alicia Pearce, the Athena SWAN Project Coordinator
