ECU is committed to equality in the workplace for people of all genders so they feel enabled, and are supported, to pursue careers in their chosen fields. ECU was selected to participate in the first Australian pilot of Athena SWAN, an international accreditation program to achieve gender equality in academia, and particularly to attract and retain more women in science. We are striving to remove barriers to gender equity and in particular to attract and retain those who have chosen a pathway in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).
