A network of trained Equal Opportunity Contact Officers are located in all areas of the University.
Equal Opportunity Contact Officers receive regular training, guidance and support in the EO Grievance Procedures and informal complaints handling by the Manager, Equal Opportunity and Diversity.
The role of the Equal Opportunity Contact Officers is to provide confidential support and information to people involved in a complaint of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment or bullying.
What do Equal Opportunity Contact Officers do?
Listen to staff and students at Flinders University who believe they are experiencing or who have been accused of discrimination, harassment or bullying and inform them on options available to resolve the matter.
When requested, support individuals throughout the resolution process. This may include discussing with the individual what they may wish to say or writing to the other person/s; accompanying the individual to speak to the other person/s; or accompanying the individual to seek guidance and/or assistance from appropriate persons or bodies within the University.
Promote behaviours that are respectful and inclusive in the Contact Officer's area of work by being a role model for the standards of behaviour expected of members of the University community.
Be a source of up-to-date knowledge of the University's Equal Opportunity policies.
Provide information to the Equal Opportunity Unit on issues in the Contact Officer's area of work related to discrimination, harassment and bullying.
