Equity and diversity

The School Of Physics takes equity and diversity issues seriously. We aim to create a culture where our staff and students can work and study in an inclusive environment regardless of their gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.

Physics at ANU gender balance

This data is harvested from the ANU HR and student administration systems and is presented for reporting and tracking of gender equity. We acknowledge and respect the fact that gender is not binary - as physicists we really understand the concept of a spectrum. We also acknowledge that gender identity may be fluid and not be easily captured in this data.
