You are invited to attend the launch of RMIT University’s Diversity and Inclusion Framework and an open, lively discussion on cultural inclusion.
The Framework sets out RMIT’s commitment to welcome students and staff from diverse backgrounds, honour the identity and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations and be an accessible and open institution. One of its priority areas is cultural inclusion, which recognises that ancestral, cultural, linguistic, ethnic or religious differences between people should be celebrated and harnessed to create a truly diverse and inclusive community.
The event is part of the 2016 Global Dialogue Series, chaired by Professor Andrew MacIntyre, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Global Development, and will be led by Professor Xinghuo Yu, Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research and Innovation. During the event you will hear from diverse speakers on:
organisations’ responsibility to support cultural inclusion
issues culturally and linguistically diverse staff and students face
recent successes and achievements
RMIT’s plans to improve cultural inclusion for staff and students
