About the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Team

The Office of the President and Provost (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) works to advance equality, diversity and inclusion at UCL. The team draws from diverse expertise to provide informed advice and engagement that support faculties and departments to develop EDI initiatives and good practice at UCL. The structure and purpose of the team are to embed equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives into core business and to mainstream the values on which UCL was founded.  The EDI team works in partnership with and to support a number of equality groups and networks. These play an important function in:

  • Representing the views of under-represented or marginalised staff
  • Helping develop practical solutions to address equality issues
  • Providing opportunities for networking and peer support among group members.

As a strategy team within Provost's Office, the EDI team can offer advice but do not undertake casework on behalf of individuals. The EDI team is often asked to make comment and provide advice on pressing equality issues, including on high-profile public debates or sensitive issues in the media. Any comments provided are aligned with the purpose and expertise of the team, and may not always represent the views of the President and Provost.
