EDI Forum Launch new Wed 13 Nov 2019   12:30 Finished

Our commitment to EDI is explicitly stated in our Strategic Plan under Theme 5 (‘Strong foundations for the future’). We say there that we will: ‘Work towards a more flexible, diverse and inclusive working environment and foster a research and learning culture that looks outward, compares and shares ideas and encourages innovation to achieve our aims.’

Over the past year, we have been doing quite a bit of thinking about how we ensure that our approach to EDI is, literally, inclusive. As a first step, we are launching an EDI Forum which, as a Non-School Institution Equality and Diversity Champion, Kirsty Allen will chair and Natalie Deighton will co-ordinate.
