In 2011 a motion was passed to only limit the ISGD, Women’s, CALD/PoC and Disabilities caucuses as the only formally recognised caucuses during QC. This was primarily due to logistical reasons, as caucuses are specifically represented in the standing orders and have time allocated to them in the timetable that cannot run concurrently with anything else.
Autonomous workshops allow space for other groups with particular shared experiences to meet and discuss their commonalities, and to discuss issues that are particularly relevant to their own experiences. They have been scheduled by tradition and request throughout the week and include:
- Asexual and Aromantic
- Rural and Regional
- Sex Worker
