Only in academia: “I publish a lot as stress relief.” Priceless admission from @tanyamonro @WLASocial #higheredwomen Summit. Confession #2: I do as well.

[email protected] has many fantastic insights to share - impressive leadership, team oriented, change agent. But I know women who leave STEMM research are no less resilient, determined or stubborn than those who stay. Individual circumstances vary greatly #higheredwomen #womeninSTEMM.
Prof @tanyamonro sharing her thoughts on the need to consider progressive promotion systems in higher ed - & also reminding us that the core business of unis is our students #higheredwomen @WLASocial.
Working with someone who encouraged her to go for opps + who acknowledged her success was formative, says @TanyaMonro. I hope most of us could name that one person who was generous and invited us to step up for the first but am I being naive? #higheredwomen @wlasocial.
Listening to @tanyamonro #higheredwomen reflections resonates strongly.
Listening to Prof #dawnfreshwater is totally inspiring- culture and values as strategic enablers, bringing a fresh humanity to education @WLASocial #higheredwomen.
#Higheredwomen Confession: I have a #Leadership crush on Dawn Freshwater- please hire me!.
Brilliant description of deep tension universities are facing between non-profit social mission and revenue model of for-profit businesses - UWA VC Dawn Freshwater @WLASocial #higheredwomen.
“Education changed my life, and it’s a privilege to be able to change others’ lives (through education)” - Dawn Freshwater @WLASocial #higheredwomen Summit..
Being reminded of the privileged opportunities that we have as academics in higher education - but at the same time, tolerating Prof #dawnfreshwater challenging us to find solutions that don’t just lead us to the nearest binary @WLASocial #higheredwomen.
Really looking forward to seeing the impacts of this @WLASocial initiative following the dynamic #higheredwomen #Leadership Summit.
So often we hear about working women carrying the housework load in family homes, but interesting hearing @leighsales claim that working women carry the mental load at home - does this resonate? @WLASocial #higheredwomen.
40:40:20 gender balance for panels is a fantastically inclusive approach as cisgender people dominate all conversations around gender equity isolating and excluding all non-cisgendered people and ironically prohibiting real gender equity being achieved! #higheredwomen.
Once again Maggie Evans-Galea is spot on: sponsorship, not only mentoring, is so critical. I make a point to proactively put talented women in my network forward for career, speaking, networking opps, & have benefited from people doing this for me too #higheredwomen.
Some of your mentors should become sponsors- people who champion you within & beyond your organisation, so important for career development- thanks for sharing @MVEG001 @WLASocial #higheredwomen.
#higheredwomen as an “opt in” event women have chosen to be here today. We know it’s worth our time and money to ensure equity. What might be holding others back - not just from this event, but maybe also from engaging in change? All sorts of.
Key messages I’ve taken from @MVEG001 - learn from your own mistakes and those of others - don’t hold back, own your success, be aware of your privilege @WLASocial #higheredwomen.
@MVEG001 powerful reflections on the moments that impact the retention of women in science. Thank you. #higheredwomen.
Refreshing and sobering to hear @MVEG001 sharing her experiences on a panel of moving on from academia recently @WLASocial #higheredwomen.
Great panel discussion @WLASocial #higheredwomen - glad to hear @cosmicpinot argue that universities that don’t have 50% women in senior leadership positions in next 5 years are CHOOSING this #inequity.
Thanks Prof #BrianSchmidt for acknowledging that the ‘hero mode’ in academia needs to change, that it’s a model of the past - collegial work in diverse teams needed in higher ed as the mode #higheredwomen @WLASocial.
Appreciate the honesty of @MarciaDevlin in sharing her experiences of some of the challenges for women in academic leadership - stick to your principles, be yourself, be direct are key takeaways for me #higheredwomen @WLASocial.
Now to the panel session. Outstanding panelists. Let’s see what they have to say about overcoming barriers and establishing enablers. #higheredwomen.
