Event description
A seminar to challenge thought on culture and diversity in the sciences.

About this Event

This event is jointly organised by CSIRO, ANSTO and the National Measurement Institute (NMI) with the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS), to inspire and challenge approaches to diversity and inclusion in the sciences. The aim is to raise awareness of how agencies are driving cultural change to promote diversity and inclusion, engage with agency leaders on the challenges in driving this change and help everyone identify everyday ways in which they can make a difference and help agencies thrive.

The event is open to interested staff from across Australia's science agencies. Please be advised that the Lehany Theatre has limited seating so early registration is encouraged.

Come along to hear Mary Ann O'Loughlin AM (Deputy Secretary, DIIS), Dr Adi Paterson (CEO, ANSTO/Male Champion of Change), and Jane Coram (Director, CSIRO Land & Water, and former CEO, NMI) set the scene for a lively panel discussion on why diversity and inclusion in the sciences promotes innovative thinking and big ideas.

The event will be facilitated by Ms Jane Urquhart, Head, Science and Commercialisation Policy Division, DIIS, with panellists being:

  • Dr Wafa El-Adhami, Executive Director, SAGE, Australian Academy of Science and Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering
  • Ms Rachael Jackson, General Manager, People and Planning, DIIS
  • Dr Keith McLean, Director, CSIRO Manufacturing / Male Champion of Change
  • Dr Simone Richter, Group Executive, Nuclear Science & Technology and Landmark Infrastructure, ANSTO
  • Dr Bruce Warrington, CEO NMI (a/g) and Chief Metrologist

A limited number of video-conferencing links will be available via a video SIP/H323 system. Please contact vcavusersupport@industry.gov.au for more information.
