UWA Commits to:

Openly calling for gender equity on panels, at conferences and other professional events.

Actively supporting women's voices and championing diversity more broadly.

Ensuring that all forums that the University is involved in both within and beyond UWA take equal gender representation and other facets of diversity into account so that equity of voice is achieved.

Ensuring that all forums organised by UWA take the gender of speakers and panellists into account and uniform gender panels are not hosted.

Enquiring about the gender composition of the panellists/speakers and how the organisers are working towards both men and women being represented.

Reserving the right to withdraw from events should diversity of speakers not be achieved.

Recognising where gender representation is not achieved at an event, and if a UWA employee is speaking they reserve the right to:

  • mention that improved diversity in the speaker mix was requested, and
  • highlight relevant women leaders in the field and potential speakers in the presentation.
