Equality, Diversity & Inclusion


Our Faculty is home to a diverse and culturally enriched community with staff and students coming from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, Our people are at the heart of everything we do, and we aim to promote an inclusive environment for staff and students alike, with a commitment to furthering Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI).

EDI Committee

The Faculty's Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee is responsible for overseeing and guiding the Faculty's EDI priorities. The Committee identifies, implements, promotes and monitors faculty-level actions aimed at improving the working and learning environment for academics, professional services staff and students, in line with University objectives.

Colleagues from each of the five Departments and from the Faculty make up the Committee’s membership, with members representing different job roles, career stages, family responsibilities, gender, ethnicities, and other protected characteristics. Each Department has their own Equality & Diversity Committee which considers local issues as well as undertaking initiatives that align with Faculty EDI priorities

The Committe is currently focused on three key priority areas including imporving the inclusivity of our recruitment practices, furthering race equality, and enabling the student voice to be heard across the Faculty. 

Inclusive Culture Fund 

The EDI Commitee provides a fund for initiatives and activities that support the promotion an inclusive working and learning environment at King’s. Open to all undergraduate, master’s and PhD students as well as staff, individuals or groups may apply for grants of up to £500. 

Academic Awards are given to individuals or groups of undergraduate, postgraduate taught or postgraduate research students who have conducted innovative projects, activities or events that promote equality in STEM.

Women in Science

In 2022, Nature Chemistry published an article highlighting the systemic intersectional inequalities faced by women in STEM throughout their careers, particularly in relation to grant funding. These differences accumulate over the course of an individual’s career to create substantial disparity in opportunity and experience, driving women out of research careers.

As part of the faculty’s work on EDI, we are actively working to support women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to address the current underrepresentation of women working and studying in these areas.
