Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Committee
Embedding equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) principles into the life of the School of Social Sciences and Philosophy continued with the creation of the School’s EDI Committee and the creation of the Director of EDI role in September 2021. In September 2023 the committee was expanded to include the heads of department and a Deputy Director of EDI.
The EDI Committee Terms of Reference (ToR) can be found at this link. The Director and the Committee work with the School Executive Committee promote equality, diversity and inclusion across all of the activities in the School.
The EDI Committee welcomes suggestions from the wider School community on all EDI issues. If there are any issues that you would like to bring to our attention, please contact us.
