Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in UCD
UCD Vice-President for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
UCD is committed to creating an environment where diversity is celebrated and everyone is treated fairly regardless of gender, age, race, disability, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, civil status, family status, or membership of the Traveller community.
The EDI Strategy sets out our commitment and objectives for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and the necessary actions to achieve these objectives. At the heart of this ambitious plan is the aim to achieve cultural change across the University requiring continued commitment from all employees and students in promoting the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion and applying them in our daily activities as a community. We will constantly reflect on our activities and be open and transparent about changes that have a major effect on employees or students.
I am confident that working with all members of our community, we can make a real and meaningful change.
