Initiatives

We work with students and staff across the whole University to evolve a culture that embraces equity and supports a diverse and inclusive community through strategic policies, initiatives, training programs and events.  

One of the five initiatives outlined by the Strategy 2025 is to implement UNSW’s Disability Action Plan (DIAP). This plan aims to make the learning, working and teaching experience welcome and inclusive for people of all abilities.

EDI grants aim to encourage initiatives that enrich UNSW’s culture of equity, diversity and inclusivity. In March 2019, students and staff were given the opportunity to apply for a $5,000 EDI grant.

The UNSW Respect! Survey invited students and staff from 18 April – 17 May 2019 to share their experiences in relation to harassment, bullying, discrimination, sexual misconduct and related topics.

UNSW Diversity Fest 2019 brings students, staff and the wider community together to uplift voices from diverse backgrounds and ignite conversations for a more inclusive society.
