The Pleiades Awards: towards gender equity

CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science has received a bronze award in the first year of a new national scheme to improve gender equity in Australia’s astronomy departments and research institutes.

Inspired by the United Kingdom’s Athena SWAN scheme, the Pleiades Awards have been created by the Astronomical Society of Australia to recognise organisations that take active steps to advance the careers of women.

“We have established the structures and clearly demonstrated the intent to deliver improvements in diversity. While there is room for substantial improvement, we’re very proud of this external recognition of our efforts to build a better working environment”, says Jill Rathborne, Astronomy and Space Science’s Diversity Committee Chair.
