Female staff still the minority in higher education

Professor Belinda Tynan has been working in the education sector for more than 30 years.

“I’ve been in higher education since 1998,” Professor Tynan says. “Prior to that, I was in education but I was a school teacher. So I’ve worked across the full dimension.”

In her 18 years working in tertiary education, Professor Tynan has encountered her fair share of challenges in the workplace.

Obtaining the role of Deputy Vice Chancellor (Education) at RMIT in May this year, Professor Tynan is part of a minority. Only 27 per cent of RMIT’s Professors are women.
