6. What is HEDx Live?
HEDx Live events are state-based livestream experiences that bring into focus critical transformation topics for the higher education sector. The HEDx Live format utilises network quality production values, features opinions from the state’s leading Vice Chancellors and investigates Professor Marcia Devlin’s new book Beating the Odds: A practical guide to navigating sexism in Australian universities.
HEDx Live is a 60 minute virtual event hosted by HEDx founders Emeritus Professor Martin Betts & Karl Treacher (CEO of The Culture Institute) focussed on gender equity and inclusion in the higher education sector. Highlights include a short keynote presentation by Professor Marcia Devlin (CEO of the Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership), Vice Chancellor and leader insights from a selection of NSW universities and an investigative Q&A panel.
HEDx Live Sydney is endorsed and sponsored by nine NSW universities and research institutes, with OES partnering as the overall series sponsor. Each event will have an invited online or face to face audience of more than 250 current and future leaders from all sponsoring universities.
The HEDx Live events are positioned as disruptive catalysts for sector change. Stimulating new ideas, new ways of thinking and a path toward changing higher education for good, HEDx Live events engage the higher education sector on critical topics that matter.
