The Department of War Studies is committed to ensuring that all students and staff, whatever their background, feel welcome and can flourish. We recognise that issues of structural racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination pervade society, and that long-term work is necessary to ensure all staff and students can reach their full potential.
The EDI Council
The Department is committed to an ambitious programme of reform led by the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Council. Open to all War Studies staff (professional services, estates and facilities, and academic) and students (undergraduate, postgraduate, PhD), all members are invited to shape our activities and goals on an equal basis.
The EDI team is led by Dr Anna Plunkett and Dr Stephan Engelkamp, who work closely with the War Studies Senior Leadership Team, DSD and School EDI representatives Dr Anna Brinkman Schwarz and Dr Ellen Hallams, and the Faculty EDI Committee. We encourage all students and staff to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org and come along to Council meetings to help set the reform agenda and deliver positive change for everyone.
