Equality, Diversity & Inclusion learning supports in UCD.

Unconscious Bias 

UCD held a national conference in Spring 2019 to explore the impact and effectiveness of Unconscious Bias Awareness Raising on the elimination of discrimination. Outputs from the conference informed a holistic approach to address conscious and unconscious biases, including embedding awareness raising as part of UCD training courses and an Unconscious Bias pilot session being delivered to senior leaders in UCD.

Visit our page on Unconscious Bias Awareness Raising here to find out more about Unconscious Bias and how it can impact on decision-making and actions. You will find some definitions and links to useful resources such as slides, video clip and articles.

Equality Diversity and Inclusion in Higher Education (EDI in HE) eLearning programme 

The EDI in HE eLearning programme is an interactive tailored online resource that aims to provide UCD employees with an awareness of the key equality and diversity issues across the equality grounds in Irish legislation in a University context.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in HE (EDI in HE) is the successor programme to the original LEAD (Living Equality and Diversity Programme) programme developed by the IUA Equality Network in 2012, and it represents a continuation of the blended approach to generating mainstream employee conversation and engagement with equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights issues in all our institutions.
