EDI case studies

May 21st, 2019

A blog post by Professor Sarah Sharples, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion:

Dear colleagues,

In order to encourage Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) learning across the University, we would like to create a set of case studies covering the following key characteristics of our staff and students:

  • Age
  • Care responsibilities
  • Disabled students and staff
  • Gender equality
  • Gender reassignment
  • LGBTQ+
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Mental health
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race equality
  • Religion and belief
  • Socio-economic background

Do you have any specific examples where staff or students from the above groups have been supported by the University or what we could do better to understand the issues these individuals face?

Please send your examples to Riz.Ahmed@nottingham.ac.uk by Friday 31 May 2019 so we can collate a list of potential case studies.

We are planning to publish the case studies as a paper that will be available for anyone to access on the internet. This will help to increase awareness of EDI activity so we can take steps to make improvements in this area. Individuals of course have the option of remaining anonymous in the case studies; the focus will be on the stories themselves and the learnings that we can take from these.

If staff have specific concerns regarding the support that is available to them, they should continue to raise these with their line managers for them to be actioned.

Many thanks for your contributions to this important initiative.

Professor Sarah Sharples
Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
