Fiona White Receives Vice Chancellor’s Award for Excellence

Congratulations to SUPIR Lab director, Professor Fiona White, who, along with her colleagues Professors Daniela Traini and Robyn Overall, were awarded the Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in the category of Outstanding Mentoring and Leadership for the success of their Strategic Promotion Advice and Mentoring (SPAM) program. The award was presented during the University of Sydney’s Innovation Week. 

The SPAM program continues to play an important role in redressing the significant under-representation of female academics that has persisted at senior levels in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM). The initiative has led to a sevenfold increase in the number of women promoted to Professor in STEMM. Congratulations, Fiona!​
