2022 Diversity Week

UniSC is a community that recognises and embraces diversity among our staff, students, and community partnerships. It provides an inclusive environment where each person feels they belong and are respected, connected, and empowered.

To ensure we all benefit from a culture of diversity and inclusion, we launched the 2021–2023 Diversity and Inclusion Plan.

We can all make a difference and be champions for promoting an environment in which the diversity of our staff, students and our wider communities is valued. Diversity Week is an opportunity to demonstrate your individual commitment to contribute to creating an inclusive environment.

Diversity and inclusion is everyone’s business. What is your commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion at UniSC this week and how can you embed it in your daily work/life practice? Let us know!

The 2022 Vice Chancellor and President's Equity Diversity and Inclusion Awards will be announced during Diversity Week.
