GEDI initiatives at ACU

Our Commitment

At ACU we're passionate about gender equality, diversity and inclusion (GEDI) and focused on progressing programs of work and policies to enhance gender equality outcomes for our people. We are proud of our achievements to date.

ACU Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Zlatko Skrbis joins a network of CEOs and senior leaders across the public and private sectors as a Pay Equity Ambassador, committed to gender equality and pay equity.

Our GEDI priorities and focus is guided by our Gender Equality Diversity and Inclusion Framework and Gender Equality Action Plan which align with our mission and values. Our Athena Swan Bronze Award accreditation signifies our pursuits and ongoing programs of improvement in equity, diversity and inclusion of which ACU is immensely proud. Our application together with the Athena Swan action plan further embeds gender equality, diversity and inclusion into how we work together every day at ACU.

Reporting and Governance

Transparency is important and we're required to report on our GEDI progress.

Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA)

Each year, we submit a WGEA Compliance Report and Letter to report on our GEDI initiatives' progress and make this accessible to the university community.

Victorian Gender Equality Commission

We have an obligation as a defined entity under Victorian legislation to take positive action to achieve workplace gender equality. ACU takes a university wide approach to meeting this obligation. Our progress is reported every two years against defined gender equality indicators. Our first report was submitted in February 2024.
