Program Snapshot

Held over three days with a focus on ‘Enabling Excellence through Equity’, this professional development forum aims to position equity in a strength based model, whereby institutions recognise the rich knowledge, experiences and skills that diversity can enable.

The conference endeavours to highlight the outstanding work of equity practitioners across the sector, as well as celebrate the achievements of our staff and students who have leveraged their experience to achieve excellence.
