Making your department more inclusive

UCL has a diverse community of staff and students that makes UCL a dynamic and innovative place to work and study. There may be occasions where managers need guidance or advice so that they are able to support diverse teams, for example, if a colleague is dealing with mental health issues, trying to balance their work and family life or worried about discussing their sexuality at work.
