Hi everyone.

A reminder for Lisa’s Zoom colloquium tomorrow; details below. Even though this is an ASTRO 3D event, we encourage all in our community to join.

Please note the starting time of 2PM (AEST), not 1PM listed on the ASA events calendar.

See you then!

Dear ASTRO 3D members.

Please join us for our next A3D Zoom colloquium at 2PM Tuesday 21st April. Mark your calendars!

This month we have our Director, Professor Lisa Kewley speaking from ANU. Aside from leading a large team of incredibly talented researchers, technical and admin staff, Lisa is a world-leading expert in the theoretical modelling and observation of star-forming and active galaxies. Her recent research combines stellar evolution and photoionisation models with cosmological hydrodynamic simulations to predict how the ionising radiation in galaxies changes over time.

See below for the talk and dial-in details.

All talks are 25+5min. Please connect with both your video and audio OFF. Please try and limit questions to after the talk. If you’ve never used Zoom before you’ll need to install some software; you’ll be prompted when you click the link, so best to get that set up beforehand.

Thanks, and see you on the 21st!

Closing the gap: full workforce gender modelling for STEM in Australia

The fraction of women at the higher levels in Australian STEM remains at 20-30%, despite having achieved parity at level A (junior postdoc) for nearly two decades.  I present an evidence-based Monte Carlo model that can reproduce the current gender disparity at all levels in Australian science, starting with the 2002 data.  I show that either a small 2-3% implicit bias in recruitment and/or double the number of departures from women at levels A-B can explain the current gender gap.  To provide institutions with guidance in closing the gap, I run my models forward in time, while including various initiatives, such as 50:50 hiring, a goal of 50:50 departures, and equal retirements.  I show that the current gender gap for levels B-E in Australian STEM in academia can be closed within 12-15 years with the implementation of reasonable and fair initiatives.  These results have important implications for future workforce planning at institutions worldwide.
