Melbourne Social Equity Institute is committed to achieving fairer societies through research that makes a difference.
We conduct and facilitate interdisciplinary research that addresses the causes and consequences of social inequities and advances knowledge about effective ways to respond.
We are leaders in community-engaged and co-productive research for social change. Our work contributes to changing public policy and perceptions, as well as improving social and organisational practices. Our approach creates opportunities for researchers, community organisations and people with lived expertise to develop their skills in working together.
The Institute's directorate is responsible for allocating funding, coordinating communities of like-minded researchers and engaging with external partners, policy makers and the public.
Research priority leads steer the research direction, commission projects and champion outputs.
The Melbourne Social Equity Institute is guided by its reference group and advisory board.
