UCL Inclusion Awards recognise work or contributions that individuals or teams make to progressing or improving equality, diversity or inclusion practice. 

Nominations can be made in the following categories:

  1. Provost’s award for Embedding Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

This award recognises an individual’s or team’s effort to embed EDI into mainstream work; through their approach and undertaking of all tasks, be it day-to-day tasks or larger projects.

  1. Sarah Guise award for Catalyst for Change

This award recognises a person or a team doing things differently by incorporating EDI values into the way they work resulting in a positive shift in organisational culture.

  1. Sir Stephen Wall award: Inspiring Role Model

This award recognises a person who has taken the opportunity to engage with staff, speaking openly about their personal experiences in a visible forum that encourages and champions diversity and inclusion in a way that new and existing staff can relate to.

The winner of each category will receive £2,000 to be spent on furthering equality, diversity and inclusion activities at UCL.

A fourth prize of £2000 (to be spent on furthering equality, diversity and inclusion activities at UCL) will be awarded by the UCL Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Team to a student who has shown the strongest commitment to a culture change towards race equality, in the last two years.

Nominations will be considered by the Inclusion Awards Panel drawn from across UCL and externally. When writing a nomination, please remember that the panel can only judge based on the contents of the nomination, so please do include as much detail as possible about how the nominee meets the criteria.
