Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Research


Join the network

About us

Overcoming inequality and promoting diversity is a significant and enduring societal challenge. 

This Network aims to identify and prioritise key areas and challenges of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion to advance our understanding about how individuals and societies experience, respond to and are affected by intersecting identities and/or sociocultural factors.

This builds on Oxford Brookes University’s well-established research history in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, especially through our Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice. 

As a cross-disciplinary and collaborative Network, we are exploring critical issues and key themes for progress to a more inclusive society, including social class and mobility, gender inequalities, sexuality, disabilities, parenthood, national identity and race.
