Diversity and Inclusion Achievements 2018-2021
Our previous Diversity and Inclusion Framework 2018-2021, guided by the strategic plan Focus 靠谱的菠菜网 2015-2020, saw the University aspire for a community that is diverse, inclusive, 创新和可持续, upheld in both value and practice by every 靠谱的菠菜网 staff member and student. This Framework was accompanied by six action plans:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Staff and Students,
- 教职员及学生 from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds,
- 教职员及学生 of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities,
- 教职员及学生 with disability, ongoing medical or mental health conditions,
- Students from low socio-economic backgrounds.
作为一所大学, we've taken great strides and made many key achievements across the six action plans, 2018 - 2021之间.
