Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Sometimes representing over 50 countries in our faculty and students in a given year, the Business school is the most diverse of the University’s schools, in terms of nationality. However, diversity means much more to us as we take it to mean all characteristics that makes each person unique. Be it race, gender, sexuality, ability, neurodiversity, learning styles, personal preferences and so on.   As a school we are committed to working to continuously find ways to engender inclusivity in everything we do so that no one feels left out.

Our EDI committee is represented by a community of staff and students who have lived experience or a commitment for improving learning and working conditions in various areas of EDI and we are guided by the University’s EDI commitment.
