What is the purpose of the Committee?

The Department seeks to promote equality and diversity, taking positive action to address inequalities for the benefit of all staff and students. The EDCCI Committee represents the Department of Aeronautics' students and staff with representatives from each student and job family. It acts as a Departmental forum for matters relating to Equality, Diversity, Culture, Communications and Inclusion, and allows us to:

- implement ideas and actions relating to EDCCI

- lead on Athena SWAN applications and reports. The Department was recently awarded a Bronze award.

- monitor, evaluate and improve policies and procedures for improving working practices and for changing culture within the Department
