Diversity Fest will bring students and staff together to embrace the diversity of our UNSW community and ignite broader conversations on creating an inclusive society, where everyone can participate. 

The Game Changers sporting panel will be the centrepiece of the event and features Australian Paralympian and current Wimbledon champion Dylan Alcott, Rugby 7s Olympic gold medallist Ellia Green, former Australian Netball Diamond and current Collingwood AFLW player Sharni Layton and the NRL’s Diversity and Inclusion Manager Casey Conway.

ABC Breakfast’s Paul Kennedy will host the panel discussion, which will boldly address issues concerning gender, sexuality, disability and race in sport, which the panellists are uniquely qualified to discuss.

UNSW Deputy Vice Chancellor Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Professor Eileen Baldry believes the event will highlight and advance the important work the university is doing in this sphere.

“Our research unequivocally shows that inclusivity enriches our learning, teaching and working experiences,” she said. “We are proud to celebrate diversity in our community and society. It is a strength – and we want to see an inclusive culture flourish at UNSW.”

All events across the week are free and open to the public. A full program of events will be released later this month, but in the meantime, don't forget to book your FREE ticket to the Game Changers panel at the Roundhouse on Tuesday 24 September.
