QAAFI Diversity and Inclusion Committee

QAAFI values the contribution of our staff and students from around the world, who undertake high impact science in tropical agriculture and food production. To support gender equity and diversity across QAAFI’s operations, we have established a Diversity and Inclusion Committee​.

Our aims

  • Develop and implement diversity and inclusion goals, strategies and targets with the aim of implementing best practice in QAAFI
  • Monitor the ongoing success of these initiatives and identify impediments to progress 
  • Provide a forum for broad discussion and consultation around diversity and inclusion at QAAFI
  • Contribute to the communication and reinforcement of shared values around diversity and inclusion to support a culture of inclusiveness at QAAFI
  • Raise awareness for issues pertaining to diversity and inclusion through seminars and other relevant events
  • Make recommendations to the QAAFI Management Team on issues relating to diversity and inclusion for staff and students at QAAFI
  • Work in partnership with other diversity and inclusion support groups across the University to share best practice, and ensure alignment with University-wide initiative

The Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI) is showcasing incredible female scientists. Science and gender equality are both vital for the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Over the past 15 years, the global community has made a lot of effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science. UQ is actively working to lead the way, inspiring young women to become active in science and help build a better world.
