Commitment to Equality and Diversity

ECU values individual differences and diversity.

We’re proud of the wide cultural diversity of people who’ve chosen to study and work here, in a learning environment that includes both school leavers and mature age students.

ECU is committed to a welcoming and inclusive learning and working environment, offering a wide range of activities to support and advance equality.

ECU is also committed to equality in the workplace for people of all genders so they feel enabled, and are supported, to pursue careers in their chosen fields. We are striving to remove barriers to gender equity by making improvements to our practices and organisational culture, and in particular to attract and retain those who have chosen a pathway in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).

We're proud to be one of the 40 institutions accepted for the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) Pilot of the Athena SWAN Charter in Australia, an accreditation and improvement program for higher education and research organisations, successful in transforming gender equity action to improve the promotion and retention of women and gender minorities within STEMM.
