Definitions

In order to provide a first class student experience, which includes reflecting the diverse nature of our membership, it is important students’ unions are committed to equality and diversity. In order to champion equality, diversity and liberation it’s important to know what these terms means.

Equality:

Equality creates a fair and inclusive society, through challenging prejudice and discrimination, and ensures individuals or groups are treated fairly and have equal access to opportunities.

Diversity:

Diversity means difference and is about recognising, respecting and embracing the differences between people and their experiences. It is about moving beyond tolerance to valuing and celebrating individual differences.  

Liberation:

The seeking of equal status and freedom from all forms of oppression
