Equal Opportunity Online Training

In September 2018 we were pleased to launch the University’s new Equal Opportunity online staff development module.Equal Opportunity Training Page Image

The new module includes the latest advice on legal and policy obligations of all staff in relation to discrimination, harassment, and bullying across the University. Developed by the Talent and Leadership Development Team and the Office of Equity and Diversity, exclusively for Western staff, the new module also includes a segment tailored to those with supervisory and management roles, covering their additional responsibilities.

It is compulsory that every staff member completes the module on a biennial basis, and is now a mandatory part of Western’s New Staff Orientation program. This new version provides the University with the ability to track staff completion rates per School and Division, which will regularly be reported to the Executive Committee.

The University’s values of equity and inclusion are shared by many in the Western community, and we are committed to an institution free of discrimination, harassment and bullying.

Please complete the module via MyCareer Online, which is accessed via Staff Online, as soon as possible to help us deliver on this important objective.

If you do not have access to MyCareer Online, e.g. you are a researcher, contractor or entity staff member you can complete the training via this link to vUWS. Please note that you must use Google Chrome as your browser (not Internet Explorer) when accessing the vUWS link to ensure the module displays correctly.  vUWS Smart link to be used:
