Equality, Diversity & Inclusion is a key enabler of King's Vision 2029 and our EDI governance structure has been designed to embed EDI throughout all structural levels of the College. Accountability for EDI within King's sits with the College's Council, who delegate to the President and Principal who works with the Senior Management Team (SMT) and Academic Board to deliver actions.
The Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee (EDIC), is chaired by the President and Principal, and has been creasted as a sub-committee of the SMT to oversee and monitor the implementation of King's Equality, Diversity & Inclusion strategic goals. The EDIC meets termly during the academic year and membership comprises of senior representatives from across the College.
Working alongside the EDIC is the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Forum (EDIF). The EDIF is a body for staff and student voices and it comprises of diverse members who represent the breadth of perspectives of the King's community. It provides the EDIC with insight into staff and student community experiences. Members are representative of their respective areas and are expected to communicate key issues and updates, acting as a key link between local community and King's governance and decision-making structure.
Feeding into the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee are a number of leadership and action teams and task force groups that focus on different areas of work. These include:
- Athena SWAN Leadership & Action Team
- Race Equality Board and Race Equality Leadership & Action Team
- Stonewall Workplace Equality Index Task Force
