Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

What is the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy?

Gender under-representation is a primary concern across the computer science, engineering and technology sectors, with only 15% of undergraduates being female. Empowering gender diversity is at the core of the AgriFoRwArdS CDT Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy, and essential to developing a fully inclusive research environment.

The AgriFoRwArdS CDT is committed to ensuring EDI is at the heart of everything we do. Starting from the anonymous recruitment process to mitigate unconscious bias and ensuring fairness and equality of opportunity, to guaranteeing diversity and inclusion is considered in all areas of the CDT – to include the management board, students, staff and industry partners.
