CRASSH Equality and Diversity statement

CRASSH is committed to upholding the University’s equality and diversity policy, promoting equality, diversity and inclusivity as the principles which govern our workplace culture.

The Centre ensures that no individual will be discriminated against as set out in the Equality Act 2010.

We encourage the development and support of all members of our community, including those whose identities intersect one or more Protected Characteristic.

All members of our Appointments Committees are required to take the University’s Equality and Diversity and Implicit Bias Training. In addition, all of the CRASSH management, research and administration community are encouraged to take the same training and ensure it is kept up to date. 

Equality, diversity and inclusion are considered in all aspects of CRASSH’s work, from website images and news stories to events. 'CRASSH aims to be as inclusive as possible when inviting speakers and chairs to events hosted by CRASSH. Additionally, we ensure that assessment panels for our competitive fellowship, conference and research network schemes are gender-balanced and as representative as possible.

It is our hope that this dedication to inclusivity and impartiality continues to allow the centre and its members to flourish in the wider academic community, and through our public-engagement activity.

– Professor Steven Connor, Director, CRASSH
