UNSW Diversity Fest 2019 brought together students, staff and the wider community to uplift voices from diverse backgrounds and ignite conversations for a more inclusive society.
The week hosted more than 30 events from panel discussions, debates to social gatherings and film screenings, each highlighting the many ways diversity and inclusion can enrich and add value to our society. The week-long festival will return in October 2020.
“Diversity Fest has changed how I approach life. Exposing myself to a diverse range of perspectives really shifted my worldview and showed me how important it is to welcome differences, and ensure every person feels 100% included. This isn’t just the Division’s responsibility; it is all of ours.”
- Current UNSW Student, John Duong
