Diversity Groups : Inclusion Network Groups

Inclusion Network

Network groups have been established at AFTRS to bring staff and students together to foster belonging and ensure a support network in the AFTRS community, as well as providing a safe space for information and ideas sharing to empower members, both within AFTRS and in the wider industry.

Each network group plays a critical role at AFTRS by:

  1. Organising times to come together as a group. This may be a social gathering or a more formal meeting. It is up to the group to determine how they would like to connect and engage.
  2. Working together to identify and deliver or recommend the delivery of one funded key project per year designed to build capability, knowledge, awareness and understanding at AFTRS.
  3. Providing input into annual Inclusion Plans, and other relevant strategies, to ensure lived experience is always considered and real and meaningful actions are being taken to improve inclusion at AFTRS
  4. Providing feedback, thoughts and input to improve the curriculum, classroom, production and workplace. Providing feedback is an opportunity rather than an obligation. Group members may choose to keep their discussions confidential.
