Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our Commitment: The FEMM Hub actively promotes a culture where the diversity of the staff involved in the Hub is positively valued and celebrated. We believe that diversity in all its forms delivers a greater impact to our research and enhances the experience of our staff, students and partners.

Our Committee: The FEMM Hub ED&I committee was set up to maintain a fully inclusive culture that is proactive in initiating change and driving forwards best practice in equality and diversity matters. The committee is made up from a representative from each of our partners as well as the FEMM Hub Manager and meet monthly.
