SDG 5 Gender equality

SDG

Gender equality isn’t just a basic human right―it’s a vital basis for a harmonious, thriving, and sustainable society. While there has been advancement in recent years, we are not currently on course to realise gender equality by 2030. Females make up 50 percent of the global population and thus hold half of its potential. However, gender inequality endures universally impeding social progress.

Griffith University is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to tackling global challenges around gender equality. Below are some of our outputs supporting this goal.
