EDI Governance

All members of our university community are expected to own and act upon our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy. Through the strategy, we will embed a University-wide culture of inclusion that incorporates all aspects of our activity and business. It will be used to map out our delivery journey by setting strategic objectives and key actions for implementation and review. This strategy will support an environment of fairness, transparency and respectfulness for every member of our University of Leicester community.
