Equity Diversity & Inclusion

Inclusion and diversity amongst staff and students at UNSW

UNSW School of Aviation strongly supports the UNSW’s Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy and initiatives. Our school offers staff and students a safe and supportive environment, and welcomes everyone regardless of their race, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identification.

UNSW Science has implemented The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group who are committed to reducing barriers which impede EDI via initiatives that benefit both staff and students. The aim of the group is to support an equitable workplace for all staff and students of UNSW and to provide strategic direction and leadership in line with UNSW’s 2025 Strategy
