This page contains a collection of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) resources with relevance to staff recruitment and promotion in HE geography. These resources were collated as part of the project, 'Enabling equitable cultures of knowledge and practice in physical geography and environmental sciences', funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). 

This page is dynamic; if you know of other relevant resources or wish to submit your own case study, we’d like to hear from you at
