Workplace Equity

Workplace Equity

Workplace equity benefits everyone. Research has shown that equitable workplaces are more productive and innovative, report greater workforce well-being, and achieve better outcomes.

Achieving workplace equity requires sustained investment in initiatives that address attraction and retention.

We have developed evidence-based tools to support transformative action for equity in STEM workplaces. 

Workplace Gender Equity: An implementation guide supports workplaces on their gender equity journey by breaking implementation down into a simple, four-step process. The guide provides practical advice on how to develop and successfully implement evidence-based gender equity programs. Organisations can use the guide to design gender equity initiatives that work, avoid common pitfalls, and implement lasting change to shift the dial on gender equity in STEM.

The guide is a valuable addition to our existing suite of free, evidence-based evaluation tools developed to support the design of effective programs and interventions that promote gender equity. The National Evaluation Guide for STEM Equity Programs and the STEM Equity Evaluation Portal, support organisations to evaluate their initiatives and better understand what works.

Our resources will support your organisation at every stage of your equity journey.
