Equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) cannot be delivered by one individual or a single committee: it is the responsibility of everyone within our University. Each of us can contribute to building a truly inclusive environment where everyone feels comfortable to bring their whole selves to work and can thrive.

The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion team relaunched the Inclusion Forum on Wednesday 2nd November by inviting multi-award-winning diversity and inclusion expert Asif Sadiq to speak to staff about what we can all do to support equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in our roles.

With over 15 years' experience in EDI, Asif Sadiq is a passionate and inspirational global leader and keynote speaker. He is committed to creating a sense of belonging, and has been key in implementing EDI activities and programmes to create an inclusive environment in a number of organisations.

You can access the recording of the event through the Inclusion Forum SharePoint site until 2nd December 2022.

Inclusion is a journey – it's never a destination – and it requires concerted action, accountability and ownership across all levels of our University. We established the Inclusion Forum as a 'grassroots' movement for people who are passionate about EDI and who can help drive real change from the ground up. Together we are making a difference and ensuring that our University is a great place to work for everybody.
