At Swinburne, we’re all responsible for creating a culture that provides an environment that is safe, flexible and fair. It’s also culturally appropriate, friendly and professional — free from discrimination and harassment.
Our initiatives in action
AccessAbility Action Plan
Swinburne’s AccessAbility Action Plan 2015-2020 (AAP) details our strategy to create an accessible, supportive university and to be accessability confident.
Reconciliation Action Plan
Swinburne’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) builds on our long standing commitment, over two decades, to the education and training of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and communities.
Swinburne cultivates a culture of excellence, dignity, and respect, and continues to create a space where our employees and students of diverse sexual orientation and gender identities can feel safe and be given equal opportunity to thrive and contribute.
Swinburne has a number of LGBTIQ+ programs designed to support students and staff.
Swinburne Ally Network
The Swinburne Ally Network is composed of LGBTIQ+ identifying and non-identifying staff and students who champion inclusion at Swinburne. The group contributes to the design and implementation of the Swinburne’s LGBTIQ+ inclusion programs and organises events and learning sessions that raise awareness of LGBTIQ+ issues and celebrate our inclusive workplace.
