Do you work in Australia’s digital health sector? We want to hear about your experiences! Complete the ‘Understanding gender diversity in digital health survey’ by Friday 3 December.
The Australasian Institute of Digital Health (AIDH) has joined with Telstra Health, the Digital Health Cooperative Research Centre (DHCRC) and CSIRO’s Australian e-Health Research Centre to launch the first survey of its kind in understanding gender diversity in Australia’s digital health sector.
In its inaugural year, this survey sets out to understand the current state of gender diversity, career progression and equity within digital health, and to be reflective of all perspectives – both men and women who work in the sector.
There is a lack of research and data in understanding this issue, both in Australia and internationally. So, with the intention to run the survey annually, the first set of findings will set the benchmark for future iterations of the survey to build upon, as well as inform what actions are needed to create change and achieve progress for gender equity and career advancement in digital health.
If you work in the digital health sector in Australia, we encourage you to take part in this anonymous survey – with some added incentives including the chance to win 1 of 50 x $50 vouchers up for grabs, as well as the chance to receive a discounted membership for the AIDH.
The survey will close COB Friday 3 December. The high-level results will be announced in February 2022, in conjunction with an event by the Brilliant Connected Women in Digital Health network, and with a view to publish an academic paper.
