To further their impact and engage a broad network of staff with their approach to diversity and inclusion, Macquarie University has established a network of local D&I committees, Executive-level gender equity KPIs, and a clear governance structure for D&I across the University.

The aim of these local level D&I committees is to drive sustainable cultural change, tailored to local issues and contexts, and to support the implementation of the University’s diversity and inclusion plans.

To tell us more about this work, we’ve invited Macquarie University’s Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research Integrity and Development) and SAGE Academic Lead Professor Lesley Hughes, Workplace Diversity & Inclusion Consultant Harriet Jones and Workplace Coach & Consultant, Rachael Brady.

They’ll share the experiences, success stories, and struggles in establishing this new governance model, and give an overview of the training and support provided to establish, and successfully maintain, committees and networks at a local level.
