Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The UPDICE EPSRC Programme Grant promotes an inclusive and equitable research environment, recognising the value of diversity within our team and collaborators.  

It is our aim to actively promote a positive, inspiring and inclusive environment for all of our staff and students regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion or physical appearance. 

Throughout all our activities, we expect the UPDICE team and external participants to abide by our code of conduct. 

Royal Society of Chemistry Inclusion and Diversity Fund  

UPDICE co-Is Basile Curchod and Tom Oliver secured monies from the Inclusion and Diversity Fund of the Royal Society of Chemistry (£5,000) for a project entitled Catalysing Job Applications from Women in the Chemical Sciences. The aim of the small grant is to stimulate applications from women into PhD, postdoctoral and research fellow positions in Bristol Chemistry.
