Equality, diversity and inclusion

We have an equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) committee comprising members from across our departments who represent all grades of staff within Division of Psychiatry.

The EDI agrees and oversees specific actions aimed at improving our gender sensitivity and they contribute to the written application for the Athena SWAN kitemark. The members of the EDI who will be continuing to oversee this work to ensure we maintain our standards and successfully apply for a silver award are:
