The Australian Gender Economics Workshop (AGEW2019) was held at RMIT, in partnership with the Women in Economics Network, on 13-15 February 2019. The event brought together over 150 delegates to share their latest research findings into the underlying causes and solutions to tackle gender inequality in society.

The event concluded with a Policy Symposium - sponsored by the Social Change Enabling Capability Platform - focused on how to translate our research findings into actionable strategies in the real world. The panel was moderated by RMIT Vice-Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr Leonora Risse, who also serves as the Chair of the Victorian branch of the Women in Economics Network and chaired the AGEW2019 Organising Committee. A recording of the Policy Symposium discussion is available on the AGEW2019 event website.

Following the April  launch of the ECP Concept Paper, RMIT Sustainable Development Goals @ RMIT Transformation Platform, the documents are now available to read. They provide an introduction to SDGs and an indication of one approach to a Concept Paper.
