UWA's Leadership Development for Women marked its 15th anniversary late last year - and two males were honoured during the celebrations.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Alan Robson, was the inaugural winner of the Joan Eveline Mentoring Award and Frankie, a guide dog-in-training, was presented with a bone-shaped certificate for being the only male participant in the LDW program.
For an engineer, Caroline Baillie spends a lot of time in theatres and art galleries.
Winthrop Professor Baillie has a Chair in Engineering Education and has successfully used art and drama to help engineering students with the creative side of their work, to attract young people into the profession and to raise awareness of how art is made possible through engineering.
UWA defeated Bond University's team in the semi final, securing its place representing Australia in the International Rounds in Washington DC.
Afterwards, UWA defeated the Australian National University in a close Grand Final moot, which took place in Court 1 of the High Court. Justice Gummow of the High Court presided over the Grand Final. Last year, UWA was Australian Runner-Up.
Accompanying the launch of an important new book on a cancer that affects one in nine Australian women before the age of 75 are a series of pencil and wash drawings by Jon Tarry that symbolise the relationship between mother and child.
