It's been established that there is currently a lack in collected statistics about gender representation in physics in Australia.  This will require a concerted community effort to rectify, and is something that is very necessary in order to move forward with gender equity within physics. 

Conference diversity

We encourage all conference organisers to have a stated diversity policy, and for them to report the resultant statistics on this.  Recent physics conferences, held in Australia, that have undertaken this are:

Wagga 2016 

AOCNS 2015

Academic community
