Workshop: Building Rainbow-Inclusive Campuses

Workshop: Building rainbow-inclusive campuses


RMIT University is committed to building a place where our community find it safe to strive, contribute and enjoy studying and working. 

In the celebration of Pride Week 2022, the RMIT Wellbeing department and Student Council of the SGS campus will organise a workshop where special guest speakers and students speak about the theme of Building Rainbow-Inclusive Campuses for all.

The workshop will capture different critical ideas and practical suggestions for our RMIT Vietnam to be more inclusive and safer for all students and staff of diverse genders, sexes, and sexualities (DGSS).
