Looking ahead, our Institute is now on the path towards Silver accreditation. This involves evaluating the progress, outcomes, and impact of key interventions introduced since submitting the Bronze application.

Our GEDI Council supports various underrepresented groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culturally and linguistically diverse individuals, people with diverse genders, sexes, and sexualities, people living with disability and chronic conditions, and people who are neurodivergent.

Some recent successes in this area include launching internal LGBTQIA+ Ally Training, providing resources for supporting people with diverse genders, sexes, and sexualities, and Cultural Responsiveness Training to improve communication with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Additionally, subcommittees have been formed to better understand the experiences of people living with disability and people who are neurodivergent.
