Think outside the box, look inside the person. At Unitec we see the value in diversity.
Nobody is one-dimensional - there are many sides to each of us. That's what makes us so unique. It's these differences that make Unitec such a truly unique work and study environment - vibrant, innovative, highly productive and bursting with creativity.
Harnessing the benefits of diversity requires an inclusive, flexible and equitable working and learning environment; one that encourages and values difference and embraces diverse perspectives.
We are all responsible for cultivating an environment that recognises the value in our differences and uses them to achieve the best possible educational, business and community outcomes.
It also means creating an environment free from:
• Unfair treatment
• Exclusionary behaviour
• Sexual, racial or any other form of harassment
• Discrimination based on membership in a social or cultural group.
If you see or experience any of these behaviours:
• If you are a student, please contact a Student Advocate in the first instance
• If you are a staff member, please refer to the Code of Conduct and Speak Up resource for guidance and information on the support available.
The following diversity and inclusion initiatives are in place at Unitec to support staff and students:
1. ALLY Network
3. Diversity and Inclusion Rōpū – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information
