In line with Lancaster University’s ethos of supporting and advancing equality of opportunity and equality of treatment, the Lancaster Environment Centre strives to be a diverse and inclusive department. We actively engage with contemporary challenges to participation in higher education and research, to drive the institutional and cultural change necessary to bring about social justice and equality in Academia. Our research, teaching, and students span the globe and we strive to do justice to the places, people, and communities we engage with locally and globally. We are promoting gender equality in the department through our Athena Swan work and promoting diversity and inclusion in our research, teaching, and practice through initiatives such as the EDI forum and our series of Decolonising LEC activities and our Disability and Equal Opportunities support.
LEC has established a departmental EDI Forum that helps to coordinate, communicate and promote the department’s efforts towards equality and inclusivity. The LEC EDI Forum meets once a term and in it are represented all key dimensions of LEC’s activities.
