About the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Centre

What we do

The Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Centre (EDIC) team are experts who are here to support you and the College. We listen and talk to staff across the College and work towards mainstreaming EDI. We work with individuals, teams, and departments and provide help and advice. We also deliver training, programmes and initiatives and work with HR colleagues on policies and processes.  

Our main responsibilities include

  • Working in collaboration to promote EDI and to eliminate all forms of discrimination
  • Influencing and advising on best practice, specifically ensuring compliance with EDI legislation and the College’s own policies and procedures
  • Providing a variety of training courses for members of the College, as well as development programmes
  • Working with the College’s diversity staff networks, facilitating two way communication, and ensuring year-on-year progress
  • Building collaborative working relationships with appropriate community groups, professionals and sector-wide peers

Monthly newsletter

EDIC produces a newsletter every two months. The newsletter showcases what has been happening in EDIC, what our staff diversity networks have been doing, news from across the College, and the latest from across the higher education sector more generally.

We also use our newsletter mailing list to send out other relevant information that we think people may find interesting, for example our internal training courses and external events.
