The College has a dedicated Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Centre (EDIC), previously called the Equality and Diversity Unit. The EDIC is mandated to promote and embed all aspects of equality throughout the College’s communities. The Centre is just one part of a range of HR services at Imperial.

About the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Centre

What we do

We help to develop policies, training, initiatives and development programmes, many of which are undertaken with input from our equality and diversity staff networks. Our main responsibilities and remit includes the following:

  • Mainstreaming equality and inclusiveness throughout all practices and functions
  • Providing a variety of equality and diversity training courses for members of the College, as well as development programmes
  • Ensuring the College’s diversity networks groups are maintained, facilitating two way communication, and ensuring year on year progress
  • Building collaborative working relationships with appropriate community groups, professionals and sector-wide peers
  • Working in collaboration to promote equality and to eliminate all forms of discrimination
