Together, We All Belong
Diversity Week is about celebration, conversation and inclusion. We encourage creative conversations about diversity and inclusion. There will be activities running across all USC campuses, showcasing the contributions made by students, staff and alumni.
Diversity and inclusion awards
Do you know an equity, 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.
"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.
"We’re essentially creating the world’s next leaders, so our students need to make their voices heard to the people in power who are making the decisions. " (Nina Ashfield, USC graduate and Chancellor’s Medal recipient; former president of Amnesty International USC"
"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)
