About Us

Welcome to the Equity Office! Our team is here to assist you with support and guidance in practices and other factors that have resulted in inequitable outcomes.  

The Vice-President is responsible for addressing any equity-related issues via the PGC call-back form or other modes of communication. The Vice-President is also responsible for representing equity-related to appropriate working committees within UNSW such as the UNSW EDI Committee and Student Development Committee (SDC). In addition, our office is responsible for organising event(s) to that promote the knowledge or interests of postgraduate students who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, LGBTQIA+, Female, non-binary, having a disability or any part of any minority or disadvantaged group.  

Our Committee Liaison is responsible for organising events, workshops and seminars alongside the Vice-President to provide support to postgraduate students in Equity related areas. The Liaison officer is also responsible for conducting all necessary administrative duties.  

We are here to listen to your needs and ensure that UNSW remains a welcoming and supportive environment for people from all walks of life.
