Diversity and Inclusion Achievements 2018-2021

Our previous Diversity and Inclusion Framework 2018-2021, guided by the strategic plan Focus Monash 2015-2020, saw the University aspire for a community that is diverse, inclusive, innovative and sustainable, upheld in both value and practice by every Monash staff member and student. This Framework was accompanied by six action plans:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Staff and Students,
  • Staff and students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds,
  • Staff and students of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities,
  • Staff and students with disability, ongoing medical or mental health conditions,
  • Gender equality and equity, and
  • Students from low socio-economic backgrounds.

As a University, we've taken great strides and made many key achievements across the six action plans, between 2018-2021.
