Equity Diversity & Inclusion at UNSW Science

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.  

Supported by the efforts of our Science Equity Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Working Group, we're committed to reducing barriers that 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 offering sheets designed to inform our community on inclusion initiatives and activities.
