About the Melbourne Social Equity Institute:
The Melbourne Social Equity Institute acknowledges an imperfect world. Chances of birth such as class, race, ability or gender can lead to marginalisation and societies are sometimes beset by divisions of culture, economic status or creed. The Melbourne Social Equity Institute supports collaborative research between academics, members of community organisations, policy makers and people with lived experiences which helps build fairer societies. Its work is underpinned by a commitment to community-led research, as exemplified by its highly-regarded Community Fellows Program http://socialequity.unimelb.edu.au/news/community-fellows-program. The Institute also hosts a Community of Practice to explore issues related to community engaged research: http://socialequity.unimelb.edu.au/community-of-practice
