HunterWiSE is an initiative that establishes mentorship avenues for women in STEM throughout the Hunter region; promoting positive collaboration and sharing of experiences.
The Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment is focussed on the evaluation, review, development, recommendation and implementation of initiatives to promote gender equity and diversity through the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee.
The committee aims to promote a workplace which facilitates practices and policies that are equitable to all people, regardless of a person’s race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, transgender status, age, physical or mental ability, marital or domestic status, family or carer’s responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, political opinion, nationality or social origin.
It is the mission of the committee to improve gender equality and diversity in all areas of Faculty teaching, research and services. It is recognised that some initiatives may be targeted towards members of underrepresented groups in order to advance progress towards equal representation.
