Celebrating diversity events series
Our Celebrating diversity events aim to raise awareness of and celebrate religious and EDI-related awareness dates throughout the year. To learn about events that are coming up, or to find out how to contribute an event to the series please visit the Equality, diversity and inclusion events page.
Public good in action: Strategy Stories
Since the launch of the University Strategy 2030, our community has been bringing public good to life. We spoke to staff and students to find out what public good means for them, what they've been working on and how they're connecting to the Strategy. Their individual strategy stories cover topics including the role of the Student Expert Panel, the launch of our learning centre for disadvantaged schoolchildren, anti-racism training, and decolonising and diversifying the curriculum.
Inclusive Impact Awards
Nominations are now open for the EDI Exchange's Inclusive Impact Awards 2023. These awards showcase and celebrate individuals, teams and initiatives that are already advancing purposeful change at York around EDI - from research projects and inclusive education practices to collaborations, partnerships and community-building initiatives. You can also find out more about the Community Change Makers Competition, which offers groups of staff and students the opportunity to work with the EDI Exchange help make York a better, more inclusive, place to work and study.
Equality and Diversity Office
We provide guidance on, and promote engagement with, equality, diversity and inclusion matters.

In 2018, we invited staff to join us for a photo shoot which would illustrate this web page and display some of the diversity which we are proud of within the University. Everyone who took part approved the photo chosen to be shown at the top of this page. Sadly Ben Clark, who can be seen centre back standing at the window, died in June 2019. In discussion with his colleagues and partner, we decided to continue using his photo in tribute to him. Ben was a graduate of the University who went on to work with us, most recently as part of the XR Stories project.
