Diversity and Inclusion Plan 2020 - 2022

To maximise our potential as a University and ensure we reflect the diversity of our staff, students and community, we committed to developing a contemporary Diversity and Inclusion Plan.

The plan will provide an overview of diversity and inclusion activities and initiatives across 2020-2022 to ensure alignment with USC’s Strategic Plan 2019-2022. The Working Group sought and received feedback from students, staff and communities on the draft vision, definitions and guiding principles via web consultation.

Overall feedback was positive, with high levels of support for the plan. Respondents felt the language is accessible and direct, which is important for the plan to be adopted by individuals on a day-to-day basis.

Many of the general comments relate to the next component of the plan which is currently under development: ‘the how’ and what KPIs will be embedded to determine whether we are realising our aspirations.

To read further details of the feedback provided and the resulting changes, please go to Diversity and Inclusion Plan. There will also be further opportunities for input.
