Equality and Diversity

We are currently developing these pages, to display the Faculty’s values, our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusivity, and the provision we are able to make for the welfare and support of staff and students.  Over the next few weeks, you will see these pages expand to indicate more of our activity, and the ways in which consideration of race and ethnicity, sex and gender and disability inform our work as historians.

Equality and Diversity Committee and Working Groups

The History Faculty has an Equality and Diversity Committee plus four Working Groups:

  • Disability Working Group
  • Gender Equality Working Group
  • Race Equality Working Group
  • LGBTQ+ Equality Working Group

The four Working Groups meet once a term. If you would like to bring a matter to the attention of any of these Groups.

Staff and students can also contact the Oxford University Equality and Diversity Unit (or EDU) for advice and guidance.
