The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) work takes place across the university, however the work is coordinated and managed by the central EDI team.

The team are able to support and advise the University community on different areas of EDI and are involved in developing and delivering guidance, training and policies.

Oyebanji (Banji) Adewumi joined the team as the Director of EDI on 3 August 2021.


Associated Staff

We have a number of diversity champions across campus – without their support and commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, a lot of our activities could go unnoticed.
