Diversity and equality
The Department of Physics has a Diversity and Equality Committee, which is intended to have broad representation across the department. An important part of the Diversity and Equality Committee's remit is to support broader initiatives to aid diversity; for example by obtaining IoP Juno Practitioner status to "address the under-representation of women in university physics and to encourage better practice for both women and men."
In addition, the Diversity and Equality Committee is an appropriate forum to bring up issues of possibly discriminatory behaviour or practice, whether inadvertent or otherwise. We aim for the Department of Physics to be an inclusive and pleasant environment, and if any member of the department feels they have been affected by an example of this not being the case, they should approach one of the members of the Diversity and Equality Committee.
