Equity, Inclusion, Diversity and Culture
Our commitment to creating a fair and just society
The Faculty of Environment, Science and Economy is a place that strives for knowledge and development for all.
Diversity within our staff and student community is important to us. We seek to embrace and value our visible and invisible differences, and to foster a culture where everyone has an equal opportunity to be heard, be celebrated, and to reach their full potential.
In 2022, as part of the launch of the University’s Strategy 2030, we as a university declared the kind of culture we want to foster and the values that are important to us.
These values are: the discovery of new and innovative ways of working; respect to our environment and our community; seeking excellence in everything we do; and creating an inclusive community where we can stand together, learn from one another and challenge discrimination and harassment.
Inclusion in our Faculty
We, as a Faculty, are aware of the injustices our colleagues and students experience, especially in a STEM and Business environment. We are committed to confronting all discrimination including (this is a non-exhaustive list): homophobia, racism, sexism, ableism, transphobia, and xenophobia, in a way that is responsible and intersectional.
We are all committed in our roles to learn from the past and work with both the Faculty community, and with the University, to create a culture that supports everyone to succeed and flourish.
The University is a proud member of the Athena SWAN Charter for gender equality in Higher Education, and currently holds an institutional Athena SWAN Silver award.
In the Faculty of Environment, Science and Economy, we are delighted that all our departments hold awards at Bronze or Silver level and are working towards their next award.
