The survey is opened from Wednesday 11 January and will close midnight, Thursday 30th March 2023. 

Should you have any questions, please email the Access, Equity & Inclusion Team.  


The survey is part of UNSW’s submission to the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI), Australia’s national benchmark on LGBTQIA+ workplace inclusion. This is produced annually by Pride in Diversity, the not-for-profit organisation for LGBTQIA+ workplace inclusion. 

UNSW has been a GOLD Employer for three consecutive years and we are going for Gold again in 2024, as we continue to improve to experience for staff of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities. 

While the AWEI provides us with feedback on what UNSW is doing in LGBTQIA+ inclusion at an organisational level, the survey provides us with insight on the day-to-day lived experiences and views of our employees.  

Your feedback will enable us to understand the views of all employees, including those who do and those who do not identity within LGBTQIA+ communities. 

We want to hear from all current UNSW staff, no matter how you personally identify.  

So, whether this is your first time providing feedback, or you want to reflect again this year, having your say could help us achieve GOLD Employer status for 2024, while continuing to improve the experience for LGBTQIA+ communities.  

Pride in Diversity is Australia's not-for-profit employer support program for the inclusion of people of diverse sexuality and gender within the workplace. Pride in Diversity is an ACON program and manages this survey.
