Each Lunch & Learn is different in topic, however we try to showcase intersectional topic areas, and are always open to new ideas, suggestions, and areas of interest.   

For in-person attendees, there will be a light lunch provided, followed by a brief information session or workshop, ending with a panel and Q&A. We strive to feature both students and staff in our panel section, aiming to showcase diverse voices and lived experiences. 

  • All in-person events will be held in wheelchair and lift accessible rooms at UNSW Sydney Kensington campus (if not otherwise specified).    

  • Facilitators and panellists will speak using lapel or wireless hand-held microphones where appropriate.   

  • Online and hybrid events will have closed captioning enabled and transcripts can be provided upon request.   

  • PowerPoint slides and resources can be provided in advance of the training upon request.   

  • Please indicate any further accessibility requirements in the registration form. 

  • Attendance for these events is capped at 50 participants (in person) to ensure physical distancing can be maintained.   

  • Masks are strongly encouraged in all indoor areas at UNSW.  

  • Do not attend training if you feel unwell, have recently experienced any cold or flu-like symptoms or are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.
