Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

Gender equality is necessary for a more fair and sustainable society. An important contribution to that goal is equal access to education and employment opportunities. Our policies on Admission, Equality and Diversity, and Anti-discrimination and Harassment, ensure equal access and prevent discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation. To promote transparency and accountability, appeal processes are also in place.

In order to support families, USJ has a generous maternity and paternity paid leave policy for the Macao market, and has established a partnership with a nursery, that ensures childcare facilities at reduced rates for our staff, making it easier for parents to choose to actively participate in the job market.

In 2021-2022 academic year, 61% of our total student body was female; 39% of our total staff were female and 22% of our staff in senior positions were female.
