Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Exciton Science is committed to creating an inclusive and respectful workplace, where people from all backgrounds and gender can thrive and reach their full potential. 

The Centre has established a consultative Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDIC), which has created a comprehensive Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Policy, a Code of Conduct and a Misconduct Policy

The Committee has developed supporting mechanisms to ensure the Centre achieves and promotes the mental and physical wellbeing of all members.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDIC)

The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDIC) was formed in late 2019 and held its inaugural meeting at the Centre’s Annual Workshop. This Committee has evolved from the original working group formed in 2018. The Committee was tasked with developing a Centre-wide Code of Conduct, developing policies and initiatives to foster an inclusive and respectful community within the Centre, and to seek mechanisms to increase diversity.
