Equality & Diversity Training
Queen Mary University of London provides courses to ensure Equality and Diversity is embedded in our policies and practices.
Please find below information about training available.
Unconscious Bias Training
This 2 hour interactive workshop explores the role unconscious bias plays in limiting our best efforts to create an inclusive organisation and provides staff with strategies to minimise the impact of these biases in the workplace.
To limit the impact of unconscious bias on key decisions, the university has made attendance at unconscious bias training during the 2016/17 mandatory for the following groups of staff;
- All academics (Lecturers and above) and all Professional Services staff (Grade 5 and above) in schools/departments applying for Athena SWAN awards (November 2016/April 2017/November 2017) and those who have this as an action in their action plans
- Admissions tutors, student facing staff, and those responsible for (local) recruitment, panelists on promotion boards

Bespoke Equality and Diversity Training
If you would like to provide your School/Department with some bespoke training for staff development days, departmental meetings, managers briefings, team training days etc or to talk on a particular equality topic, please contact the Diversity Team for further information.
