Social Justice Advocacy Panel

The purpose of this online panel discussion is to inspire UTS staff to think of actions they can take in their immediate workplace and wider professional contexts to make a difference, reduce injustices and create culturally safe work environments.  

Join this passionate and distinguished panel to hear about their principles and stories that drives their social justice advocacy.  

This panel event is created for participants of the “Practising Inclusion: Working and Teaching for Social Justice” UTS micro credential which is also an elective in the Graduate Certificate in Higher Education Teaching and Learning. With this memo, the invitation to join this free event is extended to all staff and students at UTS. 

This panel discussion will be relevant to participants in the Micro for their second assignment which asks them to design a social justice action plan for change in their area of work. For everybody else, we hope you get inspired to plan some social justice action as well.

Dr Sally Baker, Chair of the Refugee Education Special Interest Group (http://refugee-education.org). Sally’s research and advocacy interests include refugee education and higher education equity
