Statement on diversity, equity and inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for us to ensure a vibrant and sustainable workplace culture. Accordingly, we aim to support and develop all our staff and students so they can work to the best of their ability. This requires professional conduct that creates a culture where everyone feels empowered and safe to question and challenge behaviours that compromise this goal. Accordingly, we expect performance at the highest standard of integrity for everything we do, not only in how we conduct all our activities, but also how we work together, treat each other and how we interact with external partners.
