Jennifer Ellis-Newman

Jennifer Ellis-Newman is a lecturer in accounting at Edith Cowan University (ECU). She has a Master of Accounting degree from The University of Western Australia. Before commencing an academic career in 1985, Jennifer worked as an accountant in private industry for sixteen years. It was not until she commenced working in an academic environment that she found significant differences between the way that men and women's achievements were viewed and rewarded. In private enterprise she had been accepted on her own merits and gender was never an issue. As an academic, she originally started researching accounting issues but found that her real interest was in gender, particularly discrimination against women. She aims to link her interest in gender with her discipline area and is currently looking at the issues of gender and discrimination in accounting and business schools in Australian universities.
