Corporate Social Responsibility at The University of Melbourne
- Average rating for Corporate Social Responsibility, based on 15 reviews8.2 / 10
What projects/initiatives does your employer run and what have you worked on personally?
Strong commitment to sustainability, volunteer leave offered annually
The University is committed to sustainability and even has its own charter that guides all major projects in regards to sustainability and environmental responsibility.
Public value projects are a current target in the 2015-2020 strategic plan
I think universities are renowned for this type of work. There would be more events/projects/initiatives at the University than I would even know about but they have a strong commitment to sustainability with the sustainability charter outlining the university's goals for various areas of sustainability such as environment, culture, research and so on. The University also has various philanthropic pursuits being run year-round; one of which I was involved was R U OK Day, where I organised an event to talk about mental health and promote how to support others in the workplace. I also was a part of data collection and analysis for the Athena SWAN charter, which is an accreditation the University is seeking to establish a commitment towards addressing gender disparity in senior leadership roles.
There's a sustainability charter in place and a team that encourages others to take part in sustainable activities. New buildings are created with sustainability in mind. It's possible to take leave for voluntary purposes.
There is a general commitment to 'sustainability' but it is not pioneering. Things like cycling to work are encouraged through some channels, but uptake is not broad.
Not overtly discussed, but a lot of staff demonstrate CSR behaviour.
Sustainability is prominent
