Cultural Diversity and Inclusive Practice Toolkit

The Cultural Diversity and Inclusive Practice (CDIP) Toolkit is a core resource designed to assist all members of the University of Newcastle community to promote mutually respectful relationships and translate the university’s policies and intentions into practice.

This toolkit is designed to support you in monitoring your own practice for strengths and identifying areas for development. It is not a prescriptive, fixed set of practices. The Toolkit can be used by individuals for self-reflection or by small groups to facilitate discussions about:

  • Reflecting on current practice
  • Obtaining colleague or student feedback
  • Planning
  • Review and evaluation

The CDIP Toolkit consists of:
