MARTIN BEAN SPEAKS:
Wominjeka everybody and happy International Women's Day!
I'm proud to say that last week, RMIT was named a Workplace Gender Equality Agency 'Employer of Choice' for the third year in a row!
We've made some terrific progress including:
Increasing promotion rates of our women managers from 44% in 2016 to over 62% in 2019.
Maintaining gender parity on RMIT Council, my Executive team, and among the Executive leadership group.
Supporting the success of women in STEMM fields with our award-winning Athena SWAN action plan.
Committing to the Respect Now Always Campaign to prevent and respond to sexual harm.
Introducing guidelines on Achievement Relative to Opportunity as part of our academic promotion process.
And we're addressing the issues that lead to gender pay gaps.
But we're not done. We're only just getting started.
RMIT is built on a belief in opportunity for all and we won't rest until that's the case.
Because equal opportunity is an absolute - so until there are no exceptions, no pockets of inequality or barriers remaining, the task of change still lies ahead and it's ours to shape.
I want each member of the RMIT community to feel part of this - because together we can change the world.
