Wellbeing, Inclusion and Culture​

The Engineering Department at the University of Exeter is committed to foster a culture of inclusion and sense of belonging, where staff and students can realise their full potential, regardless of any protected characteristics (age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation).​

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss anything related with Inclusion:​

“Our Engineering 2030 vision clearly states that we will promote and deliver equal opportunity for all, and we will further enhance diversity and inclusion. The improvement of departmental culture is essential to the achievement of our vision, and the Engineering Leadership team and our Wellbeing, Inclusion and Culture committee are working to identify all actions requited to improve it in a sustainable matter.”

Professor Ion Sucala, Head of Engineering

“Engineering is one of the most diverse departments at the University. We all face different barriers to that, so we are working on tackling inequalities and promoting an environment where anyone can thrive. Some of the problems are sector-wide, namely in terms of underrepresentation of women and ethnic minorities, but that will not discourage us to lead change.”​

Dr Ana Neves, Director of Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility
