In 2018 the Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) governance was restructured to help embed EDI throughout all structural levels of the University and to strengthen accountability of action plans and delivery against these plans.
The new structure is as follows:
Equality Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group (EDISG)
The Equality Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group (EDISG) is the University-level EDI group that has strategic overview on EDI matters. The EDISG is co-chaired by a Faculty VP and the Chief Operating Officer.
Queen Mary has a legal obligation to protect data against loss and unauthorised disclosure. In order to meet these obligations we are no longer able to publish documents that may contain sensitive information, such as minutes from committee meetings to our website, even if they are protected by ID Check and not publicly available. The minutes are available on QMPlus.
Faculty level and Professional Service Equality and Diversity Groups
The Faculty level and Professional Service Equality and Diversity Groups ensure that inclusion is embedded throughout Queen Mary at Faculty and departmental level. They make recommendations to the EDISG on how university strategy, policy, process and practice should promote equality and diversity and oversee the development and implementation of policy and process at local level.
