This is the blog of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee of the School of Life Sciences.
We want the School of Life Sciences to be a welcoming, inclusive and engaging place to work for all, no matter their background or professional experience.
We will update this blog with information from our committee meetings, announcements and news as well as resources we hope will be helpful to professional, technical and academic staff and students.
The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee at the School of Life Sciences is made up of representatives from early, mid-career and senior staff from academic, technical and administrative, research and postgraduate communities. We have the responsibility for applying for Athena SWAN recognition and enacting programmes of improvement as identified during the application process.
