Gender equity

Our commitment to gender equity

We advance gender equity by promoting women in leadership and furthering women’s education.

In 1881 we became one of the first universities in the world to admit female students. By 1990 — just over a century after the first woman graduated — women students outnumbered men for the first time in our history, with 15,000 women enrolled in a student body of 26,000. Women now make up well over half of our staff community – 57 percent in a total of 7500 staff (based on 2017 statistics).

These stories highlight our rich history – built on a foundation of inclusion – and our commitment to opening the doors to everyone to flourish in their educational pursuits.



As part of the University’s aim to promote gender equity in education we have gained the Bronze Award in the Athena SWAN accreditation, as part of our commitment to the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) initiative.

The SAGE program promotes gender equity and diversity in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).

A pilot of the successful UK-based Athena SWAN program established in 2005, the Australian program is a partnership between the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering.

It assesses gender equality policies and practices, and helps organisations establish ways to promote and retain women and gender minorities in their ranks.

The program achieves its goals through an evaluation and accreditation framework carried out by dedicated members of the University’s Self Assessment Team (link below) and the SAGE Project Office who are responsible for:

  • collecting, analysing and interrogating gender data across STEMM faculties at our University
  • developing our action plans to address identified issues.

The Self Assessment Team prepared the application for the SAGE/Athena SWAN Institutional Bronze Award.

Professor Renae Ryan from Sydney Medical School (Pharmacology) is the Academic Director of SAGE, and Co-Chair of the Self-Assessment Team with Associate Professor Tony Masters, Chair of the University's Academic Board.

The Vice-Chancellor, Dr Michael Spence, is the Executive Sponsor of SAGE, and the program forms part of our 2016-20 Strategic Plan.


Women share their experiences of playing leadership roles in male-dominated fields.

Female staff, students and alumna recently gathered to participate in an open discussion on the state of play for women in the workplace. Together they discussed fluctuations in female participation over time, the obvious retention problem and the societal changes needed, particularly in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).

The group also gave honest accounts of work and study and offered advice on finding the right career, the importance of mentoring and what makes a good leader. 


The SAGE Self-Assessment Team (SAT) is responsible for the submission of the University’s Bronze Award Application and meets bi-monthly. The SAT is Co-Chaired by Professor Trevor Hambley and Professor Renae Ryan, who is also the Academic Director for SAGE. The SAT includes academic staff from all STEMM Faculties and members of professional staff from HR and MarComms.


The SAT have formed working groups in four key areas:

  • Data
  • Career Progression
  • Organisation and Culture
  • Communications.

Each SAT member is part of a working group who, together with other targeted members of staff, meet regularly to gather and analyse the University’s data and develop a SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timebound) Action Plan to create the Bronze Award Application.

Working groups have each been given responsibility for areas of focus from the Bronze Application.

The Panel Pledge is an initiative to help improve gender diversity on discussion panels, discussion forums and other external events.

The pledge was introduced as part of the broader commitment to gender diversity and equity. Adapted from the national Male Champions of Change initiative, it is supported by the University’s Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) program (see above) and consistent with our strategic aspiration to foster a culture that is built on our values.

Everyone at the University is encouraged to sign the pledge and it is especially relevant for those people whose role involves planning, sponsoring or speaking at a discussion panel, forum or other external event.

Since it was launched in October 2018, more than 250 University staff have signed the pledge and that number continues to steadily grow.


The Panel Pledge wording is as follows.

I commit to: 

  • ensuring that all forums that I am involved in at the University and more broadly take gender diversity into account so that equity of voice is achieved. 
  • ensuring that all forums sponsored by University take gender diversity into account 
  • when speaking at an event, I will enquire about composition of the panellists/speakers and how the organisers are working towards gender diversity
    • and reserve the right to withdraw from the event should gender diversity not be met.
  • When speaking at an event where gender diversity has not been achieved, I will recognise this in my remarks where relevant: 
    • mention that I requested improved gender diversity in the speakers 
    • highlight relevant female leaders in my field and potential speakers in my presentation.

If you are a member of the University community and interested in signing the Panel Pledge, please contact us.


Our Women’s Career Acceleration and Leadership Strategy is designed to accelerate representation of women at all levels at the University and address several key areas:

  • developing the capability of our leaders to lead inclusively
  • setting female representation targets, and implementing and building strategies at local levels
  • providing career support and flexible career pathways
  • investigating pay equity
  • consistently implementing and managing flexible working arrangements.

We also hold an annual symposium – Women at Sydney: share, connect, change. Each year the symposium agenda includes inspiring talks, panel discussions and thought-provoking content presented by leaders from across the University to showcase, support and empower career success for women.

Throughout the year we will share the stories of inspirational women leaders from across the University.
