The group provides a consultative mechanism for developing and implementing disability inclusion initiatives across UQ.

We aim to apply the principle of ‘nothing about us, without us’ to all UQ business, meaning that decision-making, policy and programs should not be done without the full and direct participation of members of the group affected by that policy.

If you have any questions or feedback, contact Workplace Diversity and Inclusion.
