The work of the School's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team aims to encourage staff and students to recognise their full potential, feel valued, and lead successful and fulfilled lives.

We are responsible for implementing EDI initiatives across the School, within the context of University and Faculty EDI policies, working with ESE teams. These include:
The Committee meets termly and has several affiliated working groups, including a student group.
The Faculty of Arts EDI Board (FEDIB) meets three times a year. It is chaired by the Faculty PVC Professor Jeremy Gregory. School EDI Directors report to FEDIB, and this board reports to the Faculty Executive Board. The Faculty’s Director of EDI is Lucy Jones (English) and Mosina Susiwala is Faculty EDI Coordinator.

The School of Humanities fully supports the Black Lives Matter movement in challenging all forms of racism. We are aware that structural racism is a powerful force in the UK, including within universities. The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated the structural inequalities faced by many minoritised groups – especially Black, Asian and disabled people. Universities have a key role in combatting racism and all forms of discrimination: our School shares that responsibility, especially as we recognise that our predominantly white staff and student bodies are far from being representative of Britain’s racially diverse society. We acknowledge that there is still much to do to address this imbalance.
The School of Humanities is proud to be an international school with staff and students from all over the world and with partner schools in our campuses in China and Malaysia. All members of our community have the right to learn, research and work in a hate-free environment and we are committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure our community feel safe.
The School of Humanities has been granted an Athena Swan bronze award. The Athena Swan Charter is a framework which is used across the globe to support and transform gender equality within higher education (HE) and research.
