“Inclusion means looking at my daughters in the face and explaining to them how things will be different when they join the workplace.”
– Pete Boyle, CEO U@MQ and Co-Chair MQ Inclusion
“Having your own voice is very important and I find that people don’t use it because they don’t feel they can share that voice.”
– Katrina Sealy, Faculty of Science and Engineering
We all know that a truly inclusive Macquarie community is only possible when all our staff can get behind it, and have their own voice at the table.
Now, a new approach to D&I is giving everyone at the University a chance to be part of positive change, with a new MQ Inclusion Committee combining coordinated local action with whole-of-institution leadership and strategy.
Here, some of the members of the Committee share what inclusion means to them and explain how the Committee is changing the way we approach D&I at Macquarie.
Inspired? You can find contact details for your local Committee on the Diversity and Inclusion staff site – they’re ready to hear your ideas.
Join the conversation about diversity and inclusion when Macquarie celebrates International Women’s Day with a range of faculty-based events on Tuesday 9 March, including Macquarie Business School’s morning tea (which external staff can attend via Zoom), and AIHI’s Women in Leadership event.
