Our vision

To create positive impacts nationally and globally, in key areas of women’s wellbeing through collaborative translational research and practice to advance gender equity and equality.

The WWBA steering committee consulted with our 150+ members and other groups across UNSW to collaborate on our Vision for the next 5 years, including our ways of working and our priority areas of focus.

‘Supporting Carers at UNSW Sydney’ report

A new report has been released, calling for greater support for carers within the UNSW workforce as national attention to the needs of employed carers grows. The report is the result of research associated with Career Coaching for Carers – UNSW’s first initiative to champion staff with carer responsibilities beyond parental care, supported by the Women’s Wellbeing Academy.
