The Medicine & Health Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee (MHEDIC) provides strategic direction and leadership aligned with our faculty’s Health 25 Strategy and UNSW’s 2025 Strategy.
MHEDIC includes academic and professional staff and students from across the faculty. MHEDIC supports networks on gender equity, cultural diversity, LGBTIQA+ inclusion, flexible working, supporting staff and students with all abilities, access and equity, Indigenous staff and students.
We work directly with students and staff to develop a culture that embraces equity and respect through accessing relevant policies, and developing strategic initiatives, training and events. We seek to ensure that the principles of integrity, equity, diversity and inclusion are effectively embedded at every level of faculty.
The terms of reference for MHEDIC include overseeing the implementation of UNSW Medicine & Health Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy across the faculty’s schools, centres and institutes. This will ensure the faculty’s EDI Plan and the governance of MHEDIC supports UNSW’s 2025 Strategy and aligns with the objectives of the UNSW EDI Board.
Our aims are to identify actions and initiatives to help achieve the faculty’s EDI targets, including an ongoing evaluation of our progress, providing a forum for discussion of EDI issues within the faculty and contributing to the communication and reinforcement of shared values around EDI which supports our culture of inclusiveness within the faculty.
