A message from Dr Naeema Pasha, Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
“Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is a core focus for Henley Business School. Diversity is a shared commitment by everyone; it is so important to work together on the challenges and thinking around diversity to build an inclusive working and learning environment. Allyship is a key player in this – educating ourselves and others, fighting injustice head-on, and boosting and amplifying the voices of those who go unheard. Having open and honest conversations around inclusion topics raises awareness of concepts, makes space for diverse thinking and collaboration, and ultimately helps reduce discrimination.”
The Henley EDI strategy
The emphasis of our EDI strategy at Henley is on mobility in order to make progress.
Co-created with colleagues, this will be based on a data-led approach to identify the key “pain points” and put structures, policies and training in place to tackle any issues we have.
There are five key areas of EDI that we are focusing on, recognising the intersectionality of each:
- Sexual orientation
- Social mobility
Within Henley, EDI impact and initiatives are focused on four key areas for both staff and students:
- Experience (learning)
- Attainment (awards)
