Broader issues of equality and diversity
What the School is doing with respect to broader equality and diversity issues.
The Athena SWAN process focuses on gender equality and work-life balance, but the Equality and Diversity activities of the School go beyond this. In particular, we recognise the intersectional dimensions of gender inequality.
The Equality Challenge Unit has recently launched a Race Equality Charter Mark, which the School hopes in due course to participate in.
Equality and Diversity in the University
Information about all equality and diversity issues is available from the University's Equality and Diversity Unit:
