Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Contact Officers

We understand that while studying or working at UWA there may be times where you feel uncomfortable or distressed by the conduct of another member of the University community. 

DEI Contact Officers are employees of the University who perform an important role by being:

  • A source of advice and preliminary support; and
  • An agent of cultural change at the local level

This group of dedicated volunteers are located across different areas of UWA’s campus.  They are a diverse group of people with a wide range of different experiences and include academic and professional/general staff.  

A DEI Contact Officer will maintain appropriate confidentiality and may:

  • Provide information to the staff/student to enable them to make an informed choice as to how to deal with their complaint
  • Provide information about the options available to resolve an individual's concerns
  • Note possible strategies an individual can use to discuss a situation directly with another person
  • Provide the individual with information relating to counselling and/or other support services that they are able to access
  • If the individual wishes to make a formal complaint, provide them with the appropriate information of how this can be completed
  • Document the person's concern in conjunction with the advice and information provided

A DEI Contact Officer cannot:

  • Advocate for a complainant or respondent;
  • Provide counselling;
  • Investigate, conciliate or mediate complaints; or
  • Provide support on matters other than harassment, discrimination, or victimisation

If you are a UWA student or staff member and would like the assistance please refer to the list of available DEI Contact Officers below. To allow the DEI Contact Officer to arrange a time (and perhaps a place to meet if they are in a shared office) it is recommended that you send an email requesting a meeting:
