The Gender Institute is an exciting initiative at ANU. A cross-campus virtual Institute, it provides a focus for existing activity on issues of gender and sexuality and a catalyst to develop and deepen them.
The Gender Institute has two distinct but related tasks. One is to support and deepen research, education and outreach on gender and sexuality across the University, in particular promoting collaboration and linkages in this area across the seven Colleges.
The second is to support the employment and retention of women and gender diverse people at all levels, in all disciplines, across the University. To do this it will also work closely with ANU Diversity and Inclusion Unit on programs to support the attraction and retention of women staff.
The Institute encompasses academics and graduate students across all seven ANU Colleges: ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences, ANU College of Asia & the Pacific, ANU College of Law, ANU College of Medicine, Biology & the Environment, ANU College of Business & Economics, ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science and ANU College of Physical & Mathematical Sciences.
