College leadership on equality, diversity and inclusion

Assistant Provost (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion), Office of the Provost

I have been an academic at Imperial for over 20 years, first in Physics and latterly in Life Sciences.

I am interested in the culture of science and universities and am enjoying the challenge of being the academic lead for equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). 

I have a key responsibility for shaping and delivering the College's strategy on EDI. The strategy sets out how we aim to integrate EDI into everything that we do, a remit that includes both students and staff. 

If there are any EDI issues that you want to raise, I would encourage you to email me.

Deputy Director (Organisational Development and Inclusion), Human Resources and Organisational Change

My job is to create a positive working environment and culture which enables individuals to excel and the College to maintain its position as a world leader.

I achieve this via the three teams reporting into me: the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Centre; the Learning and Development Centre; and the Postdoc and Fellows Development Centre. 

Part of my role is ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) issues are embedded in the people agenda, so I am responsible for the EDI Strategy Group and sit on key College committees. 

You can contact me about EDI and Imperial's working environment and culture.
