Diversity – of thought, experience, and background – strengthens our UQ community. Join UQ Vice-Chancellor Professor Debbie Terry AO as we celebrate International Women’s Day, and explore the theme “Break the Bias”.

The event will include a panel of UQ experts who will discuss how cultural and linguistic background, disability, sexual orientation, age and gender identity – can combine to have an intersectional impact that compounds systems of discrimination, disadvantage and inequality. The panel discussion – facilitated by the Director of Organisation Culture and Capability, Dr Dee Gibbon – will focus on the lessons learned across the UQ community and what we can all do to help “Break the Bias”.

Together, we can create a world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.

Date: Tuesday 8 March 2022

: Online via Zoom

Associate Professor Paul Harpur – UQ Disability Inclusion Group
