Equality and Diversity

Equality and Diversity Committee and Working Groups


The History Faculty has an Equality and Diversity Committee plus three Working Groups:

  • Disability Working Group
  • Gender Equality Working Group
  • Race Equality Working Group

The three Working Groups meet once a term. If you would like to bring a matter to the attention of any of these Groups, please contact Jeannie Scott (Secretary to the Groups) on jeannie.scott@history.ox.ac.uk.


Staff and students can also contact the Oxford University Equality and Diversity Unit (or EDU) for advice and guidance.
