Griffith University has a long standing commitment to gender equality in its workforce with initiatives in place to support the success of our staff and students.
We are proud to be recognised as an Athena SWAN Bronze Institutional Award holder (2018-2022) and an Employer of Choice for Women (2001-2013) and Gender Equality (2014-present).
International Women's Day
Each year, Griffith celebrates our remarkable women on International Women's Day through a range of events and marketing campaigns.
Take a look at what we did for International Womens' Day 2019.
Gender pay equality
As a Pay Equity Ambassador, Vice Chancellor, Professor Ian O'Connor is committed to ensuring pay equity at Griffith. Ambassadors are business leaders who have helped set up new 'norms' and seen pay equity and gender equality more broadly recognised as standard business practice.
He has also supported the Workplace Gender Equality Agency Pay Equity Campaign - 'Daughter Water' which aimed at lifting the lid on gender pay equity and encouraging business and CEOs to make pay equality a priority.
Gender pay gap analysis
A gender pay gap analysis is conducted annually by People and Wellbeing. This analysis compares a range of factors; including like-for-like, level-by-level and the University wide gender pay gap. It assists in identifying and highlighting elements who do not have gender equality within their workforce.
This information is then used by People and Wellbeing and the University Executive to develop and implement strategies to reduce representation and identify pay gap discrepancies.
