Western Sydney University announces new Deans for Schools of Built Environment, Science and Psychology

[2019.11.14, Thu 05:03] Western Sydney University is pleased to announce the appointment of three female senior leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and health disciplines to newly established Dean roles. The appointment of these senior leaders means that 8 of the 14 Deans at Western Sydney University will be women from 2020 when the new Schools will be established and operational. Further, more than half - 57 per cent - of our most senior leadership roles at the University will be held by women. Acting Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Denise Kirkpatrick, said the three new Deans all bring extensive leadership experience to the roles and, in their own unique ways, will make a significant impact on the University's teaching and research in the STEM and psychology disciplines. "On behalf of the University community, I extend a warm welcome to Kerry, Eileen and Tanya, and congratulate each of them on their appointments. I very much look forward to working with them." These appointments build on the University's successes in addressing gender equality, including receiving the prestigious Athena SWAN Institutional Bronze Award - part of the Science in Australia Gender Equity initiative - in recognition of its sector-leading programs and initiatives to promote gender equity for staff, particularly in the STEM disciplines. The University was also ranked number 1 in the world gender equality in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings earlier this year.
