This gift is being used to support two ACU member institutions to organise workshops in-line with the aims of the Gender programme.
The ACU Gender Programme, established in 1985, promotes gender equity and equality throughout the Commonwealth, by supporting the recruitment and retention of women in higher education leadership and management, and advocating for the elimination of sexual harassment and gender-based violence on campus. As part of the programme, the ACU provides member institutions with a range of training and resources. Read more here.
Last year, the ACU was invited to apply to The Patron's Fund as a 'thank you' for our support of the Patron's Lunch event, which was held to commemorate the Queen's 90th birthday.
The Patron's Fund was set up to recognise and support the work of organisations that Her Majesty, The Queen acts as Patron for across the Commonwealth. The ACU is one of around 300 of these organisations to be awarded a gift from The Patron's Fund. Read more about the Fund here.
