Equality and Diversity
Welcome to the School of Health and Related Research's (ScHARR's) Equality and Diversity pages. ScHARR is fully committed to supporting an inclusive culture for our staff and students who come from a wide range of backgrounds. The ScHARR Equality and Diversity Committee has developed several initiatives to build on our inclusive culture including equality and diversity training for all staff. Ideas and suggestions from staff and students on ways to improve equality and diversity in ScHARR are encouraged.
