EDI commitment

Athen Swan Bronze Award logo

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are key values that help our school create and maintain the atmosphere conducive to excellent education and world-leading research and to assure the wellbeing of staff and students.

We are committed to:

  • prevent discrimination,
  • eliminate prejudice,
  • promote inclusion, 
  • celebrate diversity.

We achieve this through:

  • mindful treatment of colleagues and students,
  • inclusive curriculum design,
  • fair and transparent decision making,
  • ensuring our committees and decision-making groups have a diverse membership.

Our partnerships

  • We hold an Athena SWAN Bronze award. Athena SWAN is a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia.
  • We support the London Mathematical Society Good Practice Scheme, whose aim is to support mathematics departments to embed equal opportunities for women within their working practices.
  • We run a local branch of Piscopia which forms a UK-community of women and non-binary students and mathematics researchers.
  • We are an institutional member of the European Women in Mathematics association.
  • The University of Birmingham holds the Advance HE's Race Equality Charter Bronze award, a framework through which we are working to self-reflect, identify and remove barriers standing in the way of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students.
