Our Principles - accordion
We acknowledge that individuals have many facets that make up their identity and that if we focus on ending disadvantage through only one lens, we will miss the transformative nature of compounding discrimination. Accordingly, in our EDI practice, we seek to consistently apply an intersectional lens.
Our focus is on caring for and supporting members of our community through understanding the diversity of individuals’ lived experiences. It means not taking a one-size-fits-all approach, and instead ensuring we work meaningfully with many different people to capture the diverse realities of our communities' experiences.
Every member of the Monash community, whether they be staff, students or other partners and collaborators, values their role in progressing EDI, no matter where in the world they are.
Dynamic and iterative View
We do not have all the answers, nor do we know with certainty that each initiative or action will be effective. We create extensive and evolving standards for monitoring and evaluating our new Framework and practices to ensure we remain dynamic and contemporary.
