Conference themes

Initiatives that successfully achieve sustainable, positive change for equity, diversity and inclusion have one thing in common: a holistic systems approach.

Like the rest of the Diversity Interventions series, the presentations and workshops in the SAGE conference provide a space to share institutional actions and results in gender equity, diversity and inclusion – but with a focus on topical issues in the Australian context. View the program >>
