Diversity & Inclusion

King’s College London is a civic university in the heart of London. We stand shoulder to shoulder with the best international players, connected to local, national and global networks. We have a proud heritage and a clear vision for the future: We aspire to the very highest standards of education, research and service.

Our intention is to embed equality, diversity and inclusion in to everything we do. We want our policies, practices and processes to empower individuals to be able to contribute fully. We want King’s to reflect the diversity of London, and for our doors to be open to anyone with the capabilities to succeed. 

Diversity is crucial for enabling world leading research, impact and teaching. Working alongside people with different experiences and perspectives encourages innovation and creativity. It brings exposure to a breadth of knowledge, working styles and techniques, and it prompts us to develop ideas and consider decisions from multiple points of view.

The Faculty has held a Silver Award since 2015 in recognition of its commitment and work, and has applied afresh for a Silver Award in 2018.
