Athena Swan Accreditation Update

UniSA has successfully gained Athena Swan Bronze Accreditation!

This is a significant achievement for the University and is an outward demonstration of our commitment to growing a diverse workforce and creating an environment in which talent thrives and difference is valued.

Bronze Action Plan Update July 2021

The University of South Australia was awarded Bronze Athena Swan Accreditation by SAGE on 23 September 2019, following an extensive and rigorous self-assessment process and development of the Bronze Application and Bronze Action Plan.

UniSA is wholly committed to being a workplace wherein all our people feel included, culturally and physically safe, and are empowered to thrive. Gender equity is key to this ambition and the Athena Swan Accreditation process supports progress through commitment and action and sustainable structural and cultural change.

Through the progression of the action plan there have been positive results for key gender equity indicators. This video, from session held in July 2021 shares our progress on the action plan, the impact on our gender equity statistics as well as discusses the future plans.
