Summary This paper discusses the implementation of an inclusive curriculum in social work education, in response to an Inclusive Curriculum project at the University of South Australia which aimed to develop principles and policies of inclusivity in curriculum within national priorities. The concept of 'inclusivity' is located within theories of identity, and international developments on inclusive education. We discuss the articulation of ideas on inclusivity in social work education through the 'personal story' of an individual social work educator's practices within organizational policies and structures. We show how an educator's 'personal story' is positioned within particular perspectives of knowledge and pedagogy, and influenced by other personal stories that produced a particular response to implementing an inclusive curriculum in social work.
