We are passionate about research capacity building, and mentoring and training emerging researchers.
Our work aims to advance the health of women in Australia and internationally, to reduce inequity and create positive change. We do this in the following ways:
- Through our writing and research, we generate evidence about how gender intersects with socio-economic position, ethnicity, disability, migration and other factors that cause inequities.
- We prioritise engagement with policy makers and service providers and have expertise in participatory approaches that explicitly aim to drive social change and reduce inequity.
- We measure population-level differences on key health outcomes between women and men on significant national issues such as housing affordability stress.
- We work closely with members of those communities with the most at stake in our research, including members of migrant and refugee communities, people with disabilities, and people on low incomes.
- We contribute to training and mentoring graduate students and early career researchers.
