Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI)

The focus of the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee at the School of Chemistry is

  • to promote equality for all staff and students in the School.
  • to increase the diversity of contribution within the School.
  • to cultivate further an inclusive culture.

Our supportive and inclusive culture has been accredited with an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in 2018.
