Our EDI Framework

Our EDI Framework

Our EDI Framework 2023-2028 is designed to ensure we take a methodical and coordinated approach to embedding equity, accessibility and inclusion throughout our entire University community. The framework outlines our EDI priorities and actions we will take to ensure our University is a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment.

Six EDI Guiding Principles underpin our framework, setting our foundation for conduct and culture. Our vision is that our principles form the basis for all aspects of work and study at Royal Holloway, including what we do and what we say, and are manifested in university structures, policies and everyday processes and behaviours.

Royal Holloway EDI Guiding Principles:

  1. Collective responsibility for EDI, with senior leaders visibly championing and role-modelling our EDI principles.
  2. Equality of opportunity.
  3. Commitment to developing an inclusive mindset with the confidence to learn and act, championed by leaders and managers.
  4. Hearing and respecting lived experiences and encouraging diverse perspectives.
  5. Being aware of multiple overlapping inequalities and integrating intersectionality into practice.
  6. Inclusion ‘by design’.

We are continually working to strengthen and increase the range of support and resources to empower our community to ‘live our principles’.
