The UQ Disability Inclusion Advocacy Network (UQ DIAN) aims to promote and support disability inclusion within the University, helping to progress UQ as a safe and supportive space for staff with disabilities and for those who care for someone with a disability.

Members of UQ DIAN are not experts in matters of disability or caring for someone with a disability – they are people who want to help improve disability inclusion at the University.

UQ DIAN is a pilot program initiated by the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law, and we hope to launch this University-wide in early 2024.

Focus areas for the network include:
•    Building disability confidence
•    Growing understanding and capability in the universal design of learning
•    Raising awareness of our obligations to provide accessible workplaces
•    Enhancing our understanding and recognition of hidden disabilities
