We are developing a range of resources to help staff and students better understand issues, learn from best practice, and start taking positive steps to proactively support equality, diversity and inclusion. If you have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch with EDIC.
List of online resources
We have produced a guide for writing about ethnicity, intended for all Imperial staff and students who are writing official communications on behalf of the College.
If you are responsible for producing or editing content, then please follow Imperial's accessibility advice. We also have specific accessibility guidance for websites as well as training for web editors.
You may find these video conferencing guidelines useful on how to make online interactions more accessible and inclusive.
Dyslexia and Neurodivergence
We have brought together information and resources to help raise awareness and understanding.
The College offers specific support for staff and support for students who identify as as Neurodivergent.
EDIC also offer training for staff:
Equality Impact Assessments
EDIC has developed guidance and a template to help you carry out an Equality Impact Assessment (EIA).
An EIA can help you ensure that decisions or changes are made fairly and do inadvertently disadvantage any protected group. An EIA should help you pre-empty any issues and take action to mitigate where necessary.
A range of EDI events take place across the year. We have a general calendar which marks key dates and times of the year.
To hear about upcoming events, you can:
Where possible, we try and record events. You can watch some of our past events online.
The HR Recruitment Hub has put together advice and guidance on Inclusive Recruitment and the steps you can take throughout the process. For example using Textio to write better job adverts and take advantage of Imperial's advert bank.
All staff who are involved in recruitment are expected to have attended the online recruitment and section training course, and we would also encourage people to attend our online unconscious bias training.
The College has developed an Academic Recruitment at Imperial - case studies and toolkit to help highlight existing good practice in College.
