Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The University supports the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion in several ways.
The School plays its part in this through activities at several levels and involving staff, students and other stakeholders.
It has an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee that supports the Head of School by ensuring the strategic oversight of equality, diversity & inclusion matters within the School. It has responsibility for overseeing the implementation of institutional equality, diversity & inclusion-related policies within the School, including the development of School policies and practices to ensure the study and work environment for all students and staff is inclusive, tolerant and accessible.
The five institutes that make up the School all have their own Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Groups. Included within the work of these groups are the Athena Swan groups that oversee the preparation of applications and the related action plans.
We have four Race Equality Champions and the Head of School, Professor Siladitya Bhattacharya is Co-chair of the Race Equality Strategy Group and Senior Race Equality Champion alongside Professor Ruth Taylor.
