Career Revive Initiative

Supporting women returning to work after a career break

UOW is a proud participant of the Career Revive Initiative, a Federal Government programme aimed to provide support for medium to large businesses, to attract and retain skilled women returning to the workplace after a career break. UOW is the only university in Australia participating in this programme.

UOW has partnered with KPMG, who has provided expert advice and support by reviewing our current policies and practices, physical workplace and our corporate culture, and identifying any potential barriers that may prevent UOW from attracting talented women returning to work. UOW will work with KPMG to develop a tailored Action Plan and an online toolkit that will provide best practice advice and practical resources. These will be available in the coming months.

Career Revive complements our broader gender equality focus including participation in the SAGE/Athena SWAN Pilot and our recognition as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality. These programmes continue to deliver a range of initiatives to remove barriers to participation for our female workforce.
