Position Statement on Equity and Diversity at the 21st ICOMOS General Assembly (GA2023)

Australia ICOMOS and the managers of the 21st Triennial ICOMOS General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (GA2023), along with our invited speakers, sponsors and supporters, are committed to improving equality, diversity and inclusion across those researchers, practitioners and communities participating in the event. Therefore, we have endeavoured to build a program that will embrace different perspectives on the basis of professional experience, cultural background, disability, gender and sexual orientation to ensure our delegates have the greatest opportunity for respectful collaboration, diverse dialogues and creativity and innovation.
