ABSTRACT
This study used focus groups to develop strategies to increase the representation of women in the senior levels of academia in the Medical Faculty at Monash University. The aims of the study were to: raise awareness of a wide group of Faculty members on issues associated with equal opportunity; achieve greater involvement in implementation of equal opportunity strategies; and to obtain a broad base of opinions and ideas from which to develop strategies that would increase the representation of women on the academic staff of the Faculty. The focus group method of data gathering resulted in `faculty ownership' of affirmative action and an implementation plan that has high priority and incorporates a number of people committed to achieving the target outcomes.
