News and Events
Being Seen and Heard
Diversity and Inclusion have produced a number of videos in our Being Seen and Heard series in 2019. We started with Hannah and Meghan's story which was launched for the International Transgender Day of Visibility on March 31.
We have now added two more stories about members of the Deakin LGBTIQ+ community.
Sherrie Beaver talks about her life in Sherrie Beaver – Giving Back to My Community and Kevin Murfitt tells his story in Kevin Murfitt - An Academic Career Advocating for People with a Disability.
We will continue this series next year. If you know of any other staff members whose story deserves to be told, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
