Equality, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EEDI) is at the heart of the Podium Institute.

We value diversity and want every one of our students and staff to feel comfortable and that they belong. The richness of perspectives and experiences of all our members strengthens our research and enhances our teaching.

There is an extensive equality and diversity framework and strategy in place at the University of Oxford, being underpinned by the University’s Equality Policy (Equality Policy | Equality and Diversity Unit (ox.ac.uk). The Equality Policy provides for an open and inclusive environment, that:

‘promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.’
