Our vision is for a thriving, fair and diverse University community, working together respectfully to make a difference to each other and in the world. This section is dedicated to keeping you informed about diversity and inclusion initiatives across the University. Diversity and inclusion strategy and policy Our vision is for a thriving, fair and diverse University community, working together respectfully to make a difference to each other and in the world. Diversity refers to our commitment to recognise, embrace and increase the representation of different groups and individuals at the University. Diversity and inclusion at the University of Melbourne is about opening the intellectual enterprise to people who may be prevented from attending because of broader social inequities, by creating space, opportunities, entry points, pathways, and support for underrepresented students and staff. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion also includes our approach to building greater diversity in successful partnerships, in our procurement and supply chain practices, and in serving the community through respectful engagement that reflects leading practice. Inclusion refers to practices that support and embody fairness, safety and equality of opportunity to ensure the full participation and advancement of all individuals and groups. Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2030 Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2030 aims to advance and embed the principles of diversity and inclusion across all activities at the University to create enduring and widespread cultural change. It sets out four goals to help achieve our vision: Trust and recognition – we are a trusted leader of diversity and inclusion, internally and externally A diverse University community – we reflect the diversity of broader society Culture and belonging – everyone is welcome, safe and can belong Diversity and inclusion is embedded in all our systems, processes and work For each goal we’ve identified strategic priorities to drive specific outcomes over the next five years, and we will provide routine updates so you can see our progress. Establishing an inclusive culture starts by being honest about past experiences, what’s working and where we can improve. This strategy was informed by extensive analysis of student, staff, partner and affiliate experiences at the University. We want our community to recognise themselves in the strategy, see that it speaks to their ideas and aspirations, and commit to living its values. Diversity and Inclusion Sub-Committee A dedicated Diversity and Inclusion Sub-Committee reports to the University Executive. It is chaired by Professor Julie Willis (Dean, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning), with deputy chair Dr Julie Wells (Vice-President, Strategy and Culture), and is responsible for overseeing implementation of the Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and associated initiatives. Diversity and inclusion in policy Throughout 2020 and 2021 we completed a comprehensive review of University policies from a diversity and inclusion perspective. This included updating existing policies, and the Melbourne Policy Framework and Policy Style Guide that underpins all policies. In addition, four new policies are under development: Diversity and Inclusion Policy Disability, Accessibility and Inclusion Policy Gender Affirmation Policy A new, standalone Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Policy We also developed a set of guiding principles to accompany the Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Policy to create a safe environment where people can come forward and feel confident they will be heard, supported and treated with respect. This work is also related to our Respect campaign.
