Equity Diversity & Inclusion

Women using laptops

UNSW Science provides a non-discriminatory educational facility that promotes innovation, productivity and progress. At the UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics, we proudly welcome everyone regardless of race, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identification. 

We’re committed to supporting the UNSW's Equity and Diversity Policy and have established an Equity Diversity & Inclusion Committee to facilitate these issues and to guarantee that we offer a comfortable and safe environment for everyone. 

To give feedback on School EDI matters,  propose EDI ideas or initiatives to the School EDI Commitee, or to report a specific School process or incident that is not consistent with best EDI practice, please consult a member of the EDI Committee or fill in the School EDI form available on the Staff Intranet.
