Gender Equity

The University of Tasmania is committed to creating and supporting a diverse and equitable workplace, and gender equity is a key element of this. We want to reduce all kinds of gender barriers staff may face in advancing their careers at the University across all disciplines.

Why is gender equity important for UTAS?

Our professional and academic leaders all agree: advancing gender equality demands commitment and action from all levels of the organisation, and in particular active leadership from those in senior roles.

Advancing gender equity will enable the University to position itself to capitalise on its diverse workforce and student base to drive a more engaged and inclusive work environment, higher levels of innovation, smarter decision making and operational efficiencies which will allow the University to achieve its research, learning and community engagement ambitions locally, nationally and internationally.
