Did you know that if you take up to 26 weeks’ unpaid parental leave at ANU, you’ll still be paid your superannuation for that same period?
Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt recently announced the change to the University’s superannuation policy in his blog as part of celebrations in the lead up to International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March.
“We know that women typically spend more time away from the workforce and, on average, retire with 46.6% less superannuation than men,” Professor Schmidt said in his blog.
“This is something we can change - and we must change if want our campus to be a place of inclusivity and equality.”
Those who wish to speak to Human Resources further about this improvement to superannuation entitlements can contact the team on email@example.com.
“It's a little contribution now that compounds to make a big difference in the end,” Professor Schmidt said.
