AMSI Research and Higher Education Diversity Policy

We actively seek participation of women and under-represented groups in AMSI Research and Higher Education activities and events. Specifically, the policy includes the following:

1. AMSI Research and Higher Education Committees
AMSI actively seeks representation of underrepresented groups on the Scientific Advisory Committee, the Research and Higher Education Committee and all subcommittees.

The committees aim to achieve participation of women and under-represented groups in all AMSI Research and Higher Education programs.

2. AMSI Event Organising Committees
AMSI Management, Scientific Advisory Committee and Research and Higher Education Committee are proactive in seeking representation of women and other underrepresented groups on organising committees for AMSI events and sponsored events.

3. AMSI Speakers
AMSI Management, Scientific Advisory Committee and Research and Higher Education Committee are proactive in seeking representation of women and other underrepresented groups as AMSI funded speakers and liaise closely with local organising committees to achieve diversity among speakers.

Immediate target: 30% female speakers at AMSI events

4. AMSI Participants
AMSI Management, Scientific Advisory Committee and Research and Higher Education Committee are proactive in seeking representation of women and other underrepresented groups as participants in AMSI events and programs and liaise closely with local organising committees to achieve diversity among participants.

4.1 AMSI Higher Education Program Participants
Long-term objectives for AMSI Higher Education program participants:
• Male and female participants are approximately equal in number and of a high calibre.
• Significant increase in participation of high calibre persons of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) descent.
• By 2020, at least 20% of AMSI Higher Education program participants will be from low socio-economic status (SES) backgrounds.

Immediate target for AMSI Higher Education program participants:
• Male and female participation rates should reflect the current cohort of enrolled mathematical sciences undergraduate and postgraduate students.
• Participation rates of people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent should reflect the current cohort of enrolled mathematical sciences undergraduate and postgraduate students.
• Participation rates of people from low socio-economic status backgrounds should reflect the current cohort of enrolled mathematical sciences undergraduate and postgraduate students.

4.2 AMSI Research Program Participants
AMSI actively seeks broad representation among workshop participants.

Immediate target: 30% female attendees at AMSI events.

5. Supporting Strategies
In addition, AMSI pursues the following strategies:
• AMSI events and programs are advertised both broadly and to targeted audiences.
• Public engagement through events such as the International Year of Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 Public Lectures and other outreach events
• Careers Awareness through Maths Ad(d)s, interactive websites, events
• Utilising and promoting positive role models
• Build relationships with groups mentoring and engaging with disadvantaged groups
• Building relationships with academic institutions with strong minority enrolments
• The retention measures pursued through the AMSI Schools program

6. Evaluation
The implementation of the AMSI Research and Higher Education Diversity Policy is evaluated annually by the Research and Higher Education Committee and reported to the Board.
