Sport and Gender Equity @ Griffith
The purpose of Sport and Gender Equity @ Griffith is to lead innovative and impactful research that advances gender equity in sport through a multi-disciplinary research hub connecting scholars, practitioners, athletes and advocates.
The hub aims to:
- contribute to knowledge and practice that addresses the complexity of gender inequality and diversity within and beyond sport
- Engage in collaborative and innovative research to advance opportunities for women and girls to lead in all aspects of sport
- and educate for sustainable change in classrooms, organisations and the public sphere to transform sport cultures and gender relations.
Building Defects in Residential Property
It is reasonable to expect that our home is constructed in a manner that, at the very least, is stable, safe, sheltered and fit for purpose. Unfortunately, new residential buildings in Australia appear to be plagued with defects. In the multi-owned property environment, those that govern (the owners corporation and its committee) and manage these buildings can be significantly impacted due to the complexities associated with rectifying defects.
Find out more in Associate Professor Sacha Reid's examination of building defects in residential properties.
