Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
National Inclusion Week 23 -29 September
In recognition of National Inclusion Week, this year we will lauch our Inclusion Matters Project!!
Durham University, along with eight other Higher Education Institutions (HEI) partners and six ‘industrial’ partners, have embarked upon a £600k multi-partner research project, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The project's aim is “to shape an activity inclusive culture in the EPS community (academic and beyond) in the North of England that supports, drives, and sustains greater equality for all, including traditionally under-represented groups (e.g., women, disabled people, LGBT+, and Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic [BAME] researchers)”. EPSRC have committed £5.5m funding for 11 projects across the UK under the Inclusion Matters call.
The Launch event, hosted by the project's industry partner Siemens Gamesa will bring together delegates from the 16 partner HEI and Industry partners.
