Gender Institute is seeking expressions of interest from the ANU science colleges

The ANU Gender Institute is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from CPMS, CMBE and CECS academic and professional staff to become representatives of the ANU STEM community on the ANU Gender Institute Management Committee.

The ANU Gender Institute is a cross-campus virtual institute leading and fostering discussions, research, events, and other activities related to gender studies and gender equity within ANU and beyond. For more information about the Gender Institute membership and achievements over the past six years, please refer to our website.

This call for EOIs is an exciting opportunity for gender equity-minded individuals to link and promote the work done by access, equity and diversity committees and staff in the ANU colleges of science and engineering with the broader ANU Gender Institute community. EOIs from individuals who are active participants in CPMS, CMBE, CECS access, equity and diversity committees and other initiatives in STEM are particularly welcome to apply.

The Gender Institute Management Committee meets several times a year to advise and support the Gender Institute Convenor in their role in pursuing 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 across the seven Colleges. This is partly achieved through the award of grants for public events and research workshops and prizes for undergraduate and graduate students.

The second is to support the employment and retention of women and gender diverse people at all levels, in all disciplines, across the University. From 2017, the ANU has been engaged in the gender equity program SAGE, based on Athena-Swan in the UK, and we are partnering with Chancelry in that exciting initiative.

Please submit your Expression of Interest to: including a CV (maximum one page) with a brief description (maximum half page) as to why you think your contribution would benefit women in STEM and the objectives shared by the ANU Gender Institute.

The deadline to submit EOIs is May 26th.

Thank you and best wishes,

Margaret Jolly, ANU Gender Institute Convenor and Céline d’Orgeville, on behalf of the Gender Institute Management Committeep
