International Women’s Day – Raise Your Voice

You're invited to 'Raise Your Voice!' as part of International Women's Day 2024 at RMIT.

On the week of International Women's Day, the Equity and Inclusion team will be situated across campuses facilitating conversations with students and sharing the goals, plans, and achievements of student gender equity at RMIT thus far. 

Share in the joy of our mission as we capture the thoughts, feelings, and ideas of our student community regarding gender equity, in tertiary education and the world at large. 

RMIT has a long and proud history of championing student gender equity – it's embedded in our strategies, policies, programs, and practices. These include the following: 

  • Hosting a range of events and workshops throughout the year to build aspiration and understanding for under-represented genders. 
  • Women applying for programs in which RMIT has specified that women are under-represented are eligible for equity adjustments to their selection rank. 
  • 15 unique scholarships for women, and for women in STEMM, with 93 recipients in 2023. 
  • Gender affirmation guide and supporting policies to support students and staff who are transitioning gender. 
  • Gender equity embedded into student leadership and development programs, like the Big Industry Challenge in which gender equity was the 2022 theme. 
  • Building the student pipeline through outreach to secondary schools and industry. 
  • Developing gender-inclusive student recruitment marketing material. 
  • Delivering the nationally recognised accredited course called Recognising and Responding to Sexual Violence: A Vocational Education Offering. 
  • Providing childcare and parenting rooms for the children of staff and students. 
  • Providing free sanitary items for students. 
  • Having all gender toilets for people of all gender identities and expressions. 
  • Sponsoring an annual event delivered by the Women of Colour Melbourne Collective by providing an on-campus venue and staff support.
