Charles Sturt University (Charles Sturt) has a proud history of supporting the Women's Agenda Leadership Awards, and will boast a strong presence when the 2019 winners are announced.
The awards celebrate female leadership demonstrated across a number of industries from 1 January 2018 to June 2019, as well as the change makers and agenda setters who are shifting the gender-based status quo in Australia.
Associate Professor Faye McMillan (pictured) from the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health in the Faculty of Science has been announced as one of five finalists in the category of Emerging Leader in the Government or Public Sector.
Professor McMillan, based in Wagga Wagga, holds a Doctorate of Health Science, a Masters of Indigenous Health Studies, and a Bachelors of Pharmacy, and is Australia's first registered Indigenous pharmacist.

She is joined as a finalist in that category Dr Abeer Alsadoon, a researcher and senior lecturer in Computing and Mathematics in the Faculty of Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences.
Dr Alsadoon is also an IT associate course coordinator at Charles Sturt’s Sydney Study Centre.
