Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality and Inclusion in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures

We are actively working to create resources, policies and conversations that support our equality and inclusion agenda. The Deputy Dean Kate Nash is the Faculty’s Lead for Equality and Inclusion.

School Leads for Equality and Inclusion:

Current Projects

We are working on a number of initiatives that reflect Faculty priorities. These include: working groups on race equality and an application for a Bronze Athena Swan Award. As part of this work, we have undertaken research into the impacts of Covid-19 on academic and professional colleagues and made recommendations to support recovery from the pandemic. 

You can find out more about current projects here. We also welcome suggestions for new projects and for cross-faculty collaboration. To propose a project or find out more about our work contact Kate Nash, Equality and Inclusion Lead.
