Policies from the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee in the School of Chemistry
This page is under active development so some of these links may not work yetThe School of Chemistry is actively looking to develop and apply policies to improve the workplace environment for everyone at the school. During the Covid-19 pandemic we undertook at Covid-19 survey in May 2020 and a wider EDI survey in December 2020. In order to address some of the issues and concerns brought up by our students and staff in these surveys, a number of policies were developed and discussed at the EDI committee and then passed by the School Exec. These policies have been flagged to the School through the monthly (term time) EDI newsletter - which can be seen in the New section of the EDI site.
EDI-20-4 Committee Representation and ManagementThis policy aims to enhance participation and ensure all members of the School have a opportunity to contribute.
