Board members Helen Brunt and Robyn McLeod are the Board champions for the Gender Equity subcommittee. The subcommittee’s vision is to ensure we provide fair opportunities and fair outcomes regardless of gender by 2023.
In 2019 the subcommittee implemented breastfeeding rooms across all main hospital campuses and continue to communicate on awareness of identifying, reporting and addressing sexual harassment and discrimination. Amongst this on 8 March 2019 the subcommittee celebrated International Women’s Day with a breakfast and panel session chaired by Chief Medical Officer and Lead of the Gender Equity Committee Dr Anjali Dhulia.
We are committed to removing all barriers that may prevent our consumers, employees, volunteers and community from being fully included in their healthcare. If you are interested in joining this subcommittee, please email: Equity&Inclusion@monashhealth.org
