Programs - Supporting Parents and Carers

As part of the University’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, Monash HR has implemented a range of policies, programs and initiatives designed to support staff with parental and caring responsibilities.

Support for parents and carers is critical to the University's ability to attract and retain talented staff. This includes equipping managers and supervisors to effectively support staff with caring responsibilities and those who work flexibly. There are a number of tailored programs for staff before and after parental leave, new fathers as well as managers and supervisors.
