We aim to engage all members of our University community in building a culture of inclusion and belonging where all colleagues feel connected, empowered and respected. One way of doing this is by providing a range of resources to equip each of us with the knowledge and understanding to embed equity, diversity and inclusion in everything that we do.

Roadmap to Intentional Inclusion
Inclusion doesn't just happen - we have to work at it. Each of us has the power to influence how others experience our workplace. Intentional inclusion is the ongoing effort to build a culture of belonging and empathy, where difference is valued and where the differing perspectives and experiences of others are recognised and appreciated. This roadmap outlines five ways staff can be intentionally inclusive.
Equality Impact Assessment
Removing any existing and potential barriers to inclusion is critical to creating an inclusive work and study environment where people feel welcomed, valued, and supported. Our guidance on equality impact assessment is designed to ensure that all of our staff are equipped to fully embed inclusion into any decisions, policies or activities that may impact on people.
