Equity and Diversity

What we do

In partnership with Faculties and Divisions the Equity and Diversity Unit manages:

The Unit also:

  • provides advice on policies and programs that promote diversity and equity for all staff and students in the context of anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation
  • monitors and evaluates progress towards equity and diversity goals and reports to State and Federal government agencies as required
  • facilitates training programs to promote cross-cultural communication, diversity management and awareness of rights and responsibilities under national and state anti-discrimination legislation
  • promotes social inclusion and partnerships with other sectors and community based organisations to improve access and employment outcomes
  • takes an evidence based approach to the design and implementation of all its programs.
