Diversity Week is an opportunity to celebrate the increasing diversity of the UQ community and to raise awareness of current issues that are impacting on the world’s diverse people, groups and communities.
UQ was the first Australian university to introduce Diversity Week and 2012 was the 10th anniversary.
During Diversity Week, UQ showcases the contribution made by its students, staff and alumni within Australia and across the globe and encourages the University community to engage in debate and dialogue about the issues raised by the increasing diversity of our communities and the impact of globalisation.
The highlight event of the week is the Vice-Chancellor’s Equity and Diversity Awards which are presented to staff or students who have made a significant contribution above and beyond their role in the area of equity and diversity.
2013 theme: The Art of Diversity
UQ Diversity Week 2013 invites you to explore some of the tensions inherent in the relationship between ‘art’ and ‘diversity’.
