Embedding leadership commitment and accountability for gender equity
Our work towards gender equity is led by our Gender Equity Strategy Committee (see below) which is co-chaired by Professor Sakkie Pretorius, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), and Nicole Gower, Director, Human Resources. The Committee is supported by our Gender Equity Self-Assessment Team (see below) which coordinates implementation of the strategy across the University.
In 2018, each member of our Executive Group has gender equity related key performance indicators, and is working to progress equality within their portfolio based on relevant workforce data. Leaders are central to achieving our strategy, and we are supporting them by building inclusive leadership into development programs including the soon to be launched Inspire program for new managers.
