Gender equity barriers in Australia need to be addressed in order to retain Australia’s top women scientists and innovators. This will also ensure Australia maintains high-quality and reputable research and development and gains social and economic returns spent in training women.

On International Women’s Day on March 8, The George Institute (TGI) for global health and George Clinical (GC) Australia launched new family-friendly policies to allow its staff, 73 percent of which are women, to work from home, support those who need to travel, provide childcare assistance and more. This aims to create better opportunities for them to stay and advance in the workforce.

GC has offices established across the Asia-Pacific, United States and Europe, GC. It strives to create a positive and comfortable work environment, build good relationships with line managers and provide constant motivation to succeed. All of these have contributed to the success of the organisation.
