Equality Diversity Inclusion

The School for Policy Studies is committed to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). All students and staff should be treated with respect irrespective of ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or any other protected characteristic. There is no place for prejudice or discrimination in our community.

The School for Policy Studies recognises that dismantling structural inequalities is important and difficult. We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for our students and staff and commit to dong more to: increase diversity among staff; ensure workloads are transparent and equal; examine and address the attainment gap for students by ethnicity and embed Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in all aspect of teaching, research and workplace culture in the School for Policy Studies. Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee will take this work forward, but we recognise that an effective response to embedded social injustices necessitates leadership and engagement from across the School to ensure that an inclusive, intersectional and anti-racist perspective is embedded across all our activities.
