What does EDIC do?

The EDIC team are here to support you and the College. We listen and talk to staff across Imperial and work towards mainstreaming EDI. We work with individuals, teams, and departments, providing help and advice. We also deliver training, programmes and initiatives and work with HR colleagues on policies and processes. Our main responsibilities include:

  • Working in collaboration to promote EDI and to eliminate all forms of discrimination
  • Influencing and advising on best practice, specifically ensuring compliance with EDI legislation and Imperial policies and procedures
  • Providing a variety of training courses for Imperial staff, as well as development programmes
  • Working with the College’s diversity staff networks, facilitating two way communication, and ensuring year-on-year progress
  • Building collaborative working relationships with appropriate community groups, professionals and sector-wide peers

EDIC newsletter

We send out a newsletter every two months. Our newsletter showcases what has been happening in EDIC, what our staff diversity networks have been doing, news from across the College, and the latest from across the higher education sector more generally.

We also use our newsletter mailing list to send out other relevant information that we think people may find interesting, for example our internal training courses and external events.
