Employer of Choice for Women application


24 November 2011

The University has submitted an application for a Commonwealth Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA) 2012 Employer of Choice for Women citation. The University has been awarded an EOWA citation for the past nine years.

The EOWA citation is an option for organisations that can demonstrate a level of performance above and beyond basic compliance with the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act 1999 (Commonwealth). Citations are presently held by only a small percentage of the organisations which are required to report annually to EOWA.

The establishment of two equity fellowships to enhance and promote the careers of female academics resulted in the University being nominated a finalist in the 2011 EOWA Business Achievement Awards.
