At ACU, equity is everyone’s business, and the Equity Symposium will provide an opportunity to engage with leaders and experts across both the pre-tertiary and higher education sectors.

Our keynote speakers will unpack equity and inclusion, emerging ideas and approaches to widening participation, and future directions of education in Australia.
