Edith Cowan Athena SWAN Advancement Scheme

The Edith Cowan Athena SWAN Advancement Scheme celebrates the gender diversity of our staff talent at ECU, supporting career progression in the spirit of the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) Ltd. Athena SWAN Charter in Australia. ECU is proud to be a member of SAGE Athena SWAN and was one of the first 15 Australian institutions to receive an inaugural Athena SWAN Bronze Institutional Award.
