The School of Psychology aims to provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all students and staff regardless of their race, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identification. As such, the School strongly supports UNSW's Equity and Diversity Policy in regards to these matters.
We believe that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (Questioning) students and staff ought to be able to enjoy their time with us without experiencing any sense of alienation or ill-treatment at the hands of either staff or fellow students in the University.
We're a group of individuals from the school who are passionate about supporting all staff and students with all things concerning equity, diversity and inclusivity. We keep you informed about what’s happening at UNSW and hold events for the various awareness days throughout the year. If you’d like to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact one of the following members of staff:
Every year we celebrate, Wear it Purple Day with a Purple Bake-Off and morning tea where we all wear purple!
We held a competition when we had to work from home in 2020 to see all the creative things people had been up during this time. See the wonderful creations here.
Each year we showcase the wonderful women and those who identify as women who are part of the School, here. If you’re not on this page and would like to be, send us an email!
Psychology Cares is a list of resources to utilise if you’re joining the school, expecting a child or have found yourself in any type of carers role. Note: you will need a UNSW account to access these resources. If you’re having trouble finding information or would like something included in this section, please contact us.
AIATSIS provides information to create a greater cultural awareness of the history and cultural heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands peoples. Through 10 interactive modules, it will equip you with a foundational framework for collective learning and contribute to cultural safety in workplaces. It’s a great place to start reflecting on cultural awareness, and provides various resources for further study and activities. Get in touch if you would like to undertake this training.
These are the days on which we raise awareness throughout the year. If there’s something you don’t see here but would like us to include, please let us know.
UNSW offers inclusive webinars that give staff and students information about the importance of inclusive science, research and policy. The aim of the webinars is to display best practices regarding partnership, visibility and representation in science.
