Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigenous Portfolio

 

The Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigenous Portfolio aims to maximise the potential of peptide and protein science in Australia by attracting and retaining the brightest researchers in an open and supportive research environment that encourages and respects Indigenous knowledges and environmental stewardship. In line with the Centre’s strategy, the Portfolio has put in place processes to have an inclusive workplace and a positive family-friendly work environment. These initiatives aim to enable the participation of all Centre members and affiliates, harnessing valuable expertise from all in a positive way.
