Equality Diversity & Inclusion Projects
Equality, diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of King’s Strategic Vision 2029. A key guiding principle of this vision is to create an inclusive environment where all individuals are valued and able to succeed. King’s aims to embed inclusion in its practice and culture to provide an extraordinary student experience and to be an employer of choice.
As part of this commitment, Equality Diversity & Inclusion works on a range of projects that pertain to specific protected characteristics. Often this takes the form of a self-assessment where we look at quantitative and qualitative data to evaluate the impact that our everyday practices, processes and policies might have on a particular group of people. These self assessments allow us to apply a level of scrutiny and accountability over the way King's works, as well as benchmarking ourselves against other organisations in and beyond the higher education sector.
This has equally produced an impetus for us to promote an intersectional approach while undertaking these assessments, and to taking a more holistic approach to understanding, embedding and operationalizing diversity and inclusion across the organization.
