Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The Faculty of Engineering's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team has been created to support staff and students and make sure they feel valued.

The team's mission is to encourage everyone to recognise their full potential in order to lead themselves to success.

They are working closely with people across the University to achieve this and will be running events throughout the year.

If you have any thoughts about how to make the faculty a better place to work, please get in touch with Faculty EDI Officer, Angela Aston

The Faculty of Engineering has an EDI committee made up of 15 members who work to:

  • Promote diversity, equality and inclusion
  • Support all students and staff to excel
  • Develop a culture and working environment that encourages people to challenge themselves and others openly, constructively, and with respect – to raise the quality of all we do together.
