Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

UNSW Science aims to provide an equitable place of work and study that will stimulate innovation, productivity and progress. We believe diversity and inclusion are essential to our success, helping to produce robust, credible and pioneering science of global impact and train the next generation of scientists. Through the UNSW Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) group, we're committed to reducing barriers which impede equity, diversity and inclusion via initiatives that will benefit both staff and students. With this aim in mind, we have developed staff and student EDI offerings fact sheets designed to inform our community about UNSW and UNSW Science initiatives.

The Science Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Team are launching an initiative designed to increase the visibility of diverse scientists and redefine the traditional representation of a scientist by displaying the images and stories of diverse science role models throughout history.

The Student Offerings resource was created by the Science EDI Team to outline student support resources both in our faculty and at UNSW broadly. In this pack you will be able to quickly and easily find information on resources available to you to make the most out of your University experience.

Our Science EDI working group is responsible for facilitating, supporting, and creating new initiatives, programs, guidelines and activities. It works alongside UNSW Science students and staff to ensure that everyone has equitable opportunities to succeed, regardless of background.

Browse our collection of Inclusive Webinars designed to educated our community on the importance of inclusive science, research, and policy. These resources have been curated to showcase best practice approaches to partnership, visibility, and representation in Science.

ExpEDIte: The Science Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Roundup is an initiative of the UNSW Faculty of Science EDI Working Group. We collate the recent coverage of EDI topics in the realms of Science, STEM, and higher education. We also include recent academic work relevant to EDI efforts in Science.
