Each faculty has appointed an academic staff representative and a head of department/school to sit on the committee:

Deputy Director Anne Behnk, AU HR, also sits on the committee. The decision to create this new university-wide committee for diversity and gender quality was made in the wake of the conference on gender balance earlier this year. All eleven members have been appointed, and the first meeting will take place on 1 July. 

One of the committee's first tasks will be to draft a new action plan for diversity will which replace the current plan as of 1 January 2020.
