2020 has been deferred until the first full pay

conducting a process which is fair and free
from bias, including unconscious bias.

for innovative roles as knowledge leaders at
the nexus of design, education,
communication, creative practice and social
change.

With an intersection of creativity, education
and social justice combined with QUT’s

innovator, and model for the university.
