Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The centre for sustainable hydrogen promotes an environment embracing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
Our values - why diversity matters
We appreciate that diverse teams are more successful which is why Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) are at the heart of our operation. The positive evidence for this is all around and it has been proven that companies with a diverse workforce are more productive and those with diverse boards more profitable. Our programme aims to train the next generation of energy leaders so that we can meet the net-zero global challenge and this can only be done successfully if these innovation teams are informed by diverse perspectives.
Creating an environment which is not only free from discrimination, but celebrates and values diversity is fundamental to achieving our goals. We are committed to ensuring that each person, regardless of background will have the opportunity to give their best and fulfill their true potential.
Our centre - what we are doing
We recruit amazing individuals from a diverse talent pool who contribute to the success of our centre in producing world-leading research.
- Best practice:
Our recruitment is guided by EDI best practice from the wording of adverts through to anonymised shortlisting.
- Training and support:
The centre has an EDI training framework for everyone - from students through to supervisors - and supports students, early career academics and those returning after a career break.
- Some examples include:
Providing a space where concerns and issues can be raised.
Being responsive to care responsibilities outside of work.
An EDI fund to assist students with mobility issues to participate in CDT activities or events.
