Do you know a diversity and inclusion champion?

Each year the Vice-Chancellor and President acknowledges staff, students, and graduates making an outstanding and demonstrable commitment to diversity and inclusion.

If you know someone who has undertaken diversity and inclusion work to an exceptionally high standard and live it as part of their 'Everyday Practice' please nominate them.

"Diversity is such a broad term. To me, it means recognising and celebrating everyone’s backgrounds and experiences and journeys because that’s what makes the world a richer place." (Bridie Kean, USC Associate Lecturer, Public Health; Australian Wheelchair basketballer)

When I think of diversity, I think of people’s uniqueness. Nobody’s ever the same as the person next to them. But even though everyone is unique and different, we all share common bonds.

"It’s important to celebrate our differences because people – or groups of people – become marginalised when we’re not seeking out those different perspectives." (Tanisha Watts, Vice President of Education, USC Law Students’ Association)
