Black Lives Matter - SEES statement

16 June 2020

We oppose racial discrimination in any form and recognise the burden that systemic racism places on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and staff. We strive to be an open, fair, and egalitarian School that acknowledges and supports diversity in all aspects of life, while realising there is a lot more work for us to do. 

We also recognise that Earth Sciences as a field suffers from a lack of diversity. Therefore, we are actively reviewing our practices and established structures to ensure that we are anti-racist and able to foster a diverse and inclusive community. We are committed to improving equality and diversity within our School and will soon publish an action plan to identify and eliminate biases with the ultimate aim of liberation and parity for all.
