Celebrating Griffith's Remarkable Women
Gender Equity Reporting
Each year Griffith reports to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. Some members of the University community also require compliance letters for grant and other submissions. Reports to Council on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion are also located here. These reports and letters are available to staff via the "Read More" button below.
Athena SWAN - increasing gender diversity and inclusion in STEMM
Griffith is proud of our remarkable women in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine). We acknowledge the specific equity issues that women face in STEMM fields and are committed to addressing these issues.In December 2018, we were recognised for our commitment to addressing gender inequality in STEMM, by being among the first Australian institutions to receive an Athena SWAN Bronze Institutional Award.
Leadership and career advancement
Griffith coordinates a number of programs to facilitate women's career progression opportunities including the Women in Leadership program and the Leneen Forde Leaders Program. Griffith women also participate in the external Chief Executive Women Leaders Program, and some Groups and Elements facilitate their own offerings. Griffith also provides a diversity of highly regarded leadership programs.
Our Commitment to Gender Pay Equity
Griffith is committed to closing the gender pay gap and are taking steps to identify and remedy differences. In 2019 we took a detailed analysis of pay gaps and improved processes to reduce differences. We have an ongoing commitment to continue to reduce gaps and report our gender pay gaps to our Council.
