The Sri Lanka Initiative

The Sri Lanka Initiative was set up to allow female students and academics in Sri Lanka to share their personal experiences of gender bias, marginalisation, and discrimination.

The ACU and the University Grants Commission joined forces to promote gender equality and equity at state universities in Sri Lanka, leading to the establishment of a Centre for Gender Equity/Equality by the UGC.

The goal of the Centre is to promote gender equity and equality in Sri Lankan universities by facilitating the establishment of gender-sensitive university cultures and university environments which allow students and university staff (academic, administrative, support) to pursue their work without oppression and discrimination.
