Equal opportunity for women
We believe you should be able to work and study without fear of discrimination or harassment. A key part of achieving this is actively promoting equal opportunity for women.
Women hold many research, academic and leadership roles at Monash. If you face an issue related to equal opportunity, we have dedicated staff to help you.
