    EMail to Margaret Gardner re MADA Three

    The decision to make these 3 staff redundant has lacked both transparency and respect. Important information about proposed changes to the Department of Fine Art and the staff cuts has been withheld, including the results of a secret profiling of staff from the department. Staff were never informed of the profiling nor allowed to have input into this process.

    Management have sought to avoid a serious discussion with staff about the proposed changes that may have allowed staff to put forward alternatives to staff being made redundant.

    Although the changes are being justified on the basis of a budget deficit, figures suggest that management has over-spent in a number of areas including an un-budgeted $400, 000 on external consultants for unknown reasons.

    Managements handling of the restructure process in MADA sets a worrying precedent for all Monash staff.

  8. Little shift in gender disparity in higher ed

    Posted 16 September 2014 by Jeannie Rea (Women)

    There has been little shift for some time in the gender disparity in higher education careers and studies. In some areas gender equity has deteriorated. The proportion of women vice chancellors has fallen to 20%, just eight out of 39. It had climbed to one third a few years ago. And just the second woman to head up a ‘Group of 8’ University, starts at Monash this September.

    There has been little shift in the proportion of women academics still hovering around 44%, and women are still less than one third of the professorial class, but now at least more than one quarter. While women are two thirds of general and professional staff, and have made significant inroads into senior positions (45%), there does not seem to be any recent gains. Women still predominate in lower levels and more insecure jobs across all
