For the third year in a row, The University of Western Australia was recognised this week as one of the nation's best workplaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people in Australia's first Top 10 Employers List for LGBT employees.
UWA is the only University to have featured on the top 10 list for the three years the list has been running.
The awards were determined using Pride In Diversity's Australian Workplace Equality Index, a free service provided annually by Pride In Diversity that evaluates and benchmarks LGBT inclusiveness in Australian workplaces.
Acting UWA Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bill Louden, said UWA had a strong record of commitment to diversity and inclusivity.
"I'm pleased to say that we've built an inclusive campus which values the contributions of all members of the University community," Professor Louden said.
"We work hard to ensure that everybody at UWA reaches their full potential, regardless of any points of difference.
"At UWA, we have put in place a range of strategies to promote cultural diversity and community harmony. We know that embedding diversity meaningfully across the University will make a significant contribution towards ensuring that UWA is well placed to achieve our aim of being one of the world's top 50 universities by 2050."
