The Melbourne School of Engineering is strongly committed to supporting diversity and flexibility in the workplace. It is established that a diverse workforce improves organisational performance. In the University where the exploration of ideas, thought leadership and curiosity is fundamental to our teaching and research performance, improving the representation of women is necessary in our goal to innovate and to strengthen MSE’s reputation as a world-class centre of research.
MSE is committed to remedying this gender imbalance and providing a supportive environment where women in academia are empowered to achieve their aspirations. To drive systemic change towards gender equity, MSE is working to lift the representation of women academics from 22% in 2018 to at least 30% over the next five years pursuant to a Special Measure under Section 12(1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic).
