The deadline to contribute your views to the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategic delivery plan is approaching: submissions should be made by Friday 15 March 2019.
Professor Sarah Sharples, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) recently published a new blog in which she invited University staff and students to contribute their views to the draft EDI strategic delivery plan.
EDI is vital for everyone in our staff and student community and the University seeks to create an environment whereby students and staff are treated solely on the basis of their merits, abilities and potential, regardless of gender, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, age, socio-economic background, disability, religious or political beliefs, trade union membership, family circumstance, sexual orientation or other irrelevant distinction.
The EDI plan will underpin the developing University Strategy and ensure that equality, diversity and inclusion considerations are fully embedded across the institution for our staff and student communities.
From our teaching and lectures, to our research and management teams, to our student attainment, services and accommodation, the plan will ensure that our staff and students feel supported and included in all that we do.
Good practice in equality, diversity and inclusion creates stronger communities, happier and more effective workforces, and greater ideas and opportunities for our staff and our students – today and for the generations to come.
All views will be considered, and the final plan will be published alongside the new University Strategy towards the end of the year.
