A new plan to support equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) for all staff and students across the University is now published at EDI Strategic Delivery Plan following extensive consultation across our University community.
In a new PVC Blog Pro Vice-Chancellor for EDI, Professor Sarah Sharples invited colleagues to take part in a new ‘Sphere’ programme to play an active role in embedding excellent EDI practice across the institution.
Professor Sharples said:
“Creating an embedded inclusive culture is a priority and I am proud that we are building a community where all can feel safe, happy and, ultimately, ourselves. Our strategic delivery plan will ensure that we can approach equality, diversity and inclusion across our University in a considered and coordinated manner.”
The EDI Strategic Delivery Plan
The plan sets out four areas of focus for EDI activities:
The Sphere Programme
Staff and students are encouraged to contribute their ideas and energies in delivering equality, diversity and inclusion through the new Sphere programme. You could join the Sphere Programme Board to help steer culture changes; become a Sphere Leader to deliver specific EDI initiatives; be a Sphere Ally to support events and activities; or deliver Sphere Challenges to support EDI in your faculty, school or professional service area.
