The University of Western Australia has backed a new Australian Human Rights Commission campaign aimed at eliminating racism.
UWA Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Robyn Owens said the University had a long-standing commitment to equity and diversity on campus.
"UWA strives to provide an environment where diversity is genuinely valued and equity is embedded into the core business of every working area," Professor Owens said.
"The campaign provides an opportunity for UWA to demonstrate its support for the national anti-racism initiative and showcase the great work being done on campus to promote and develop cultural competence in all areas of university life."
The national campaign "Racism. It Stops With Me" invites all Australians "to reflect on what they can do to counter racism wherever it happens".
UWA was invited by the Commission to participate in the campaign because of its nationally recognised on-campus initiatives.
