Kicking off the Spotlight on Stigma series, this seminar covers some of the key concepts and ideas in stigma. We will hear from key community leaders regarding the central stigma-related issues of concern and the strengths communities have in managing stigma and its effects.

Spotlight on Stigma 

This occasional seminar series presented by the UNSW Centre for Social Research in Health explores the cutting-edge of stigma science, policy and practice. We will draw on insights from national and international experts with the aim of building awareness and skills in the use of stigma concepts and evidence. Through this series, we hope to contribute to developing a shared literacy around key concepts in stigma, centrally involve people with lived experience in examining and unpacking research, and advance our efforts to reduce the effects of stigma in Australia.
