Janin Bredehoeft author

Janin joined Science in Gender Equity Australia (SAGE Ltd) as its CEO in December 2022. SAGE is the only transformational gender equity, diversity and inclusion program of its kind in Australia. It enables institutions to achieve meaningful systemic, structural and cultural change through the internationally recognised Athena Swan accreditation and awards framework.  Janin began her career as a nurse in Germany. However, coming from a rural, low socioeconomic background, her true passion lay in tackling economic inequality. She went on to study economics and immigrated to Australia in 2006. She completed her PhD at the University of Sydney in 2019, comparing precarious employment in academic labour markets in Germany and Australia. Since then, Janin has worked in various education, data and policy roles. Most recently, she led the research and education branch of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), where she was responsible for data management, analysis and benchmarking.
