Committee on Gender Equality and Diversity


Committee on Gender Equality and Diversity (CGED)

Established in November 2016 by the Dean of Arts, Professor Derek Collins, the Faculty’s Committee on Gender Equality and Diversity works with organizations both within and outside of the University of Hong Kong to lead the way on gender and diversity, and realize the full potential of our academic community. Since its establishment, the Committee has improved representation of women on key committees, established the Faculty’s Gender Studies programme, launched a seminar series showcasing gender and diversity research in the Faculty, and advocated for progressive change of university policies.

Membership of the Committee

The Committee is chaired by the Dean’s Advisor on Gender Equality and Diversity, Professor Gina Marchetti, and includes an elected representative from each of the four Schools (Chinese, English, Humanities, Modern Languages and Cultures) and the Centre for Applied English Studies, an elected administrative staff representative, undergraduate and postgraduate student representatives, as well as several co-opted members, including alumni/alumnae.
