Women take the job-loss hit at La Trobe U

La Trobe U tells the university community that of the 404 people who do not have a position in the new structure 62 per cent are women

The split is similar for academics to go, 53 per cent women, and among professional staff, 65 per cent are women.

However, the gender divide on losses is in-line with the university workforce. Just over 15 per cent of all women workers are gone and 16 per cent of men.

Overall, professional staff are taking the hit – with 20 per cent of the existing workforce set for the sack, compared to 9 per cent of academics.
