Faculty Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committees
Each of the 5 Academic Faculties have their own ED&I Committee. Committee Chairs sit on the University's ED&IC, and act as a conduit between University ED&I priorities and faculty ED&I activities.
See below for further information.
Arts & Humanities - Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities recognises that a diverse student and staff community is fundamental to improving our overall effectiveness. We want to create a work place where everyone feels safe and recognised. The Equality and Diversity committee aims to ensure that everybody is treated fairly and according to their individual needs. We are here to translate good intentions into real changes and practices.

Engineering - Women in Engineering
Women are under-represented in the field of engineering, with only 6% of the engineering workforce in the UK being female. The Women in Engineering initiative involves staff across Engineering at Sheffield, working together with the aim of becoming the number one choice for women to come to work and study engineering here at the University of Sheffield. The initiative is led by Faculty Director for Women in Engineering Dr Gwendolen Reilly and Deputy Director for Women in Engineering Sue Armstrong.
