Equality, diversity and inclusion statement

Equality, diversity and inclusion statement from the Organisational Development team.

Inclusion and equity of opportunity is at the core of Organisational Development's approach to any intervention, working closely with UCL’s Office of Provost (Equality, Diversity & Inclusion) and equality networks. We are committed to supporting staff members, teams and communities to thrive and progress, through building capability in leadership and through enabling and challenging allies to commit to action.

Current development activities

  • UCL Emerging Leaders - a high potential leadership development programme for Black, Asian and marginalised ethnic staff at grades 5, 6 & 7.

  • Women in Leadership and Senior Women in Leadership - leadership enhancement programmes offered to women at different stages of their careers.
