“Leading with an evidence-based approach to inform best practice is an effective way of shifting the dial when it comes to gender equity in STEM.”
Analysis of Awarded Australian Grants by Gender
Anonymised Review Study
We are leading a national trial across Australia to study the effects of anonymising grant applications for in-demand scientific equipment such as telescopes, the Australian synchrotron, and supercomputers. We are working with four Australian research organisations: CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation), ANSTO (Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation), NCI (National Computational Infrastructure) and AAL (Astronomy Australia Limited) to assess whether anonymised peer-review impacts application outcomes.
Research to Support the Diversity in STEM Review
Our research projects to support the Australian Government’s Diversity in STEM Review aims to examine the effectiveness of initiatives supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the STEM workforce. These activities will inform recommendations for consideration by the Diversity in STEM Review taskforce and panel.
