Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer
Wellcome EDI Officer
I work across the Wellcome Centres for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN), Ethics and Humanities (WEH) and Human Genetics (WHG), with my primary base at WIN.
Over the next two years I will be facilitating two initiatives: an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) translation project, and a Mental Health and Intersectionality project.
The translation project has taken the form of an Inclusive Leadership Programme, funded by the Research Culture Enhancement Fund. The Programme will run from March '22-'23 with a cohort of 15 senior PIs from NDCN, WIN, WEH and WHG.
The Mental Health and Intersectionality project will be based on qualitative research conducted across the centres, and be led by a steering group of diverse participants. It is important that we consider how mental health and wellbeing intersects with other aspects of life and protected characteristics, for example disability and race. This project will be research-led, targeting areas of improvement and Centre-specific needs, and establish realistic, achievable steps we can take to improve the work lives of all staff and students.
