NHMRC Survey on the Gender Equality Policy Requirements for Administering Institutions

Closed 25 Mar 2019

Opened 19 Dec 2018


With the release of NHMRC’s Gender Equality Strategy 2018–2021, it is timely that NHMRC again reviews how Administering Institutions (AIs) are meeting the seven gender equality requirements in the NHMRC Administering Institution Policy.

To avoid overly burdening AIs, NHMRC has streamlined the process for this review and responses will be submitted via this short online survey. Please note:

  • If your institution does not report to WGEA, the survey will ask whether your institution is currently meeting the seven gender equality policy requirements and for you to provide a description about how they are or are not being met. You can also upload documentation or include URLs to support your responses.

At the end of the survey, all AIs have the opportunity to provide any further comments or supporting documentation (either by uploading or including URLs). Please specify the relevant sections of the document(s) and how they relate to the requirements.

Instructions for completing the survey:

  • The online survey questions have been provided in the Word document below. You can use this to draft answers to the questions and seek relevant approvals. However, your survey responses will only be accepted through the submission of this online survey.
  • Once in the online survey, you will not be able to go back and review responses to previous questions.
  • Clicking on the ‘First’ button will delete your previous responses and take you back to the first question.
  • The survey can be completed in multiple sittings. To save your responses, ensure that cookies are enabled in your web browser. Then click on the ‘Save and come back later…’ button and input an email address. You will be emailed a link to come back to the last question that you answered.
  • Once you have submitted the survey, you will be emailed a PDF copy of your responses.
  • If you have any technical issues or queries about the survey content, please contact NHMRC at WiHS@nhmrc.gov.au or (02) 6217 9372.

All responses will be treated in line with NHMRC’s Privacy Policy. Privacy information about the survey platform (Citizen Space) is available on the Department of Health’s website.

We ask that all AIs please complete this survey by 11.59PM (AEDT), Monday 25 March 2019.
