Meet our Faculty of Science Equity Committee (FoSEC) members, and access minutes and other documents.
The Faculty of Science Equity Committee (FoSEC) works towards an inclusive and diverse faculty, where:
- Staff and students from all backgrounds are valued, supported, and have real and meaningful opportunities for participation and success, without the operation of implicit or explicit bias which can result in discrimination.
- Māori as tangata whenua, and members of equity groups, are fully represented across students and staff, and have access to environments and resources that will help them to flourish.
The FoSEC facilitates achievement of this vision through the development of initiatives to explore and support equity, diversity and inclusivity considerations, the implementation of policy and practice, and the monitoring and reporting of progress towards the achievement of this vision.
