The Bartlett


Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

A hub for information relating to equality, diversity and inclusion at The Bartlett.
We are here to facilitate the conversations and actions that will drive our faculty to build on the hard work of so many. We are here to strengthen our ongoing efforts to develop EDI practices that transform our spaces into more welcoming and sustainable environments.  We are here to work collaboratively, sharing ideas, and experiences in the hope of driving change that nurtures our values of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
