 Equity, diversity and inclusion work has been more a focus for me in recent years, and I have met many colleagues at UCL who are continually striving for a better and more equitable working environment for all. I aim to continue the important work done by Professor Alexandra Olaya-Castro and many other colleauges, and to focus on establishing meaningful partnerships with EDI initiatives, based on compassion, which exist beyond our walls” - Prof Nick Achilleos,Vice-Dean (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) in MAPS.
