The Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive community where all students, faculty, and staff are valued, respected, and supported. Diversity enriches our learning, teaching, and research.

We do not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind and are committed to creating and maintaining a safe environment for marginalised and underrepresented groups within our community as mentioned in the UK Equality Act 2010.

The protected characteristics in the Equality Act are:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation

We also recognise that people from marginalised groups are often disproportionately affected by systemic issues such as discrimination, and we work to ensure ongoing education and training for all members of our department to promote understanding, respect, and inclusion.

All members of our community are encouraged to participate in our efforts to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion and to create a safe and welcoming environment for all.

Further support for equity, diversity and inclusion is provided by the School’s well-being office, as well as through department programmes such as the EDI committee, the MAP chapter, as well as safe contacts. You can find all the information on the following pages. If you have any questions or feedback about this policy, please contact safe contacts.
