Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The UNSW Faculty of Science aims to provide an equitable place of work and study that will stimulate innovation, productivity, and progress and will enable staff and students to realise their potential regardless of background. We hold that diversity is required to foster an environment that produces robust, credible and pioneering science of global impact and trains the next generation of scientists.

UNSW Science believes that deliberately fair, equitable, and inclusive practice can serve to realise this vision. UNSW Science commits to reducing barriers that impede equity, diversity, and inclusion via implementation of initiatives and practices that will benefit staff and students alike.


The Faculty of Science Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (SEDI) Working Group will:  

  • Provide strategic direction and leadership in line with UNSW’s 2025 Strategy to support an equitable workplace for all staff and students of UNSW Faculty of Science; and, 
  • Identify diversity initiatives and actions and review the progress of equity, diversity and inclusion goals.
