An interdisciplinary network of Griffith academics focusing on gender equality research

Progress towards gender equality has been slowed by the outbreak of COVID-19. Now is not the time to lose hope. Now is the time to invest in people and research to discover solutions that can promote an inclusive and just society.

Griffith University is a world leader in gender equality and feminist research with an excellent track record of social justice community and industry engagements, and an institutional leader for investment in mentoring the next generation of researchers. We are proud to introduce Griffith’s Gender Equality Research Network (GERN): a membership of Griffith’s academic and higher degree scholars seeking competitive research success for projects dedicated to gender equity.
