Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We welcome everyone and work to help them reach their full potential.

We provide inclusive teaching, learning and working environments.

We nurture a culture in which diversity can flourish and ensure every student and colleague enjoys equal opportunity, regardless of: 

  • gender
  • sexuality
  • ethnicity
  • disability 
  • background 

We aim to identify and overcome conscious or unconscious bias. 

What we do

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) involves all our staff and students. It is a set of ideas and principles that we value and place emphasis on and through our actions, we represent these principles. A diverse and inclusive culture nurtures success and benefits us all.

The EDI Committee comprises of staff and students from across the school. It raises the profile of issues, guides discussion, organises events and drives all EDI actions. The School’s work is in line with the University’s wider equality, diversity and inclusion agenda.

Athena Swan

We hold a Bronze Athena SWAN award at the school level. This recognises our commitment and progress towards gender equality. It also recognises our achievements in supporting the career aspirations of our staff and students. We are working on the action log developed within that application.
