Committee mission

The mission of our Equality and Diversity Committee is to provide an inclusive work environment that enables all individuals to succeed independently of their gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or any other protected characteristic as defined in the Equality Act (2010). The committee advises on priorities for action across the school, ensure benefits from equality and diversity actions are embedded in policies and practice, and ensure that our proposed activities align with other institutional strategies and priorities.
