ACU’s commitment to gender equality, diversity and inclusion is grounded in the university’s mission. Our leading-practice workplace supports and family-friendly employment provisions that support gender equality have been recognised, with the university receiving the WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality Citation on ten consecutive occasions.
ACU’s commitment to gender equality is enabled by the implementation of the Gender Equality Strategy and Action Plan 2015-2020.
ACU’s new Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan 2021-2025 is currently in development and will be informed by broad consultation with the university community, that commenced with the Gender equality, diversity, and inclusion survey conducted in June 2021. Building on previous achievements, it will enable our continued progress with a refreshed approach to include consideration of the factors that intersect with gender to create barriers to success.
You are encouraged to share your thoughts, either through online feedback submission or in virtual consultation sessions, to inform the development of the new Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan.
