Equality and Diversity Committee (EDC)

After receiving the Bronze award from the Equality Challenge Unit, SSHM’s EDC is now implementing its Gender Equality Action Plan, aiming to ensure that best practices in equality and diversity are embedded into all processes and policies in our Department.

The GEM award required us to focus on staff, but with the creation of the EDC we intend to expand our remit to include our entire student body.

The new EDC replaces the Self-Assessment Team.

Besides implementing the Gender Equality Action Plan, the EDC is also a forum for discussing and improving our Department’s practices and policies in connection with age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex  and sexual orientation. 

Each member has a remit for a particular area, but any member can be contacted on any issues within the Department.  Any staff or student can speak confidentially to an EDC member.
