The role of Associate Dean for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities was created in 2021 as a bridge between the Faculty’s Athena SWAN Submission and the implementation of the subsequent Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP).

By September 2023 the Associate Dean(s) carried out their assigned tasks and the role came to an end. The Faculty set up the Faculty of Arts and Humanities Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee that oversees the implementation of the Faculty’s GEAP and works to ensure that the Faculty maintains Athena SWAN Bronze Award and lays foundations for the Silver Award. The Faculty will retain the Bronze Award, and be eligible to apply for a Silver Award upon the successful and timely implementation of the GEAP, that was submitted in the application.
