Equity Officer

I’m Roland, your 2021 Equity Officer. My job is to advocate for and promote equity for socially vulnerable groups within the medical school and wider medical community, to address discrimination and disadvantage on the basis of LGBTQIA+ status, disability and gender, amongst other things.

If you have an equity issue or generally want a safe space to speak to someone about inclusion within the med school, I’m your guy!

The best way to contact me is at studentequity.medicalschool@anu.edu.au.

I’m a (very) loud and proud gay man with a background in the HIV sector so expect to see some rainbows around campus in 2021!
