Equity and Diversity Advisers located in each faculty and some administrative areas provide the first point of contact for individuals on a wide range of equity and diversity matters.
The Equity and Diversity office provides advice and assistance on strategic equity and diversity matters to senior staff, supervisors, and individuals as well as the Guild of Undergraduates and University colleges.
The office assists senior administrators to identify gaps in policy, service provision, and operational processes. It also provides advice and assistance to Deans, Heads of School and sections managers to integrate equity and diversity considerations into faculty, school, and divisional strategic planning processes.
Advisers provide an informed and confidential source of advice and assistance to any member of the UWA community who has a query or concern regarding an equity or diversity matter.
The concern may relate to the workplace, teaching and learning environment or another aspect of the University’s operations. Initial enquiries about possible instances of discrimination or harassment also should be made to an equity and diversity adviser:
