The PDN ED&I Taskforce is reviewing our equality, diversity, and inclusivity  practices in PDN to identify the many ways in which we can improve and build a truly diverse, equal and inclusive environment. We meet every 6-8 weeks.

Meet the Taskforce here


If you experience or witness unacceptable behaviour, including racial harassment, there are several sources of support:

You can speak in confidence to PDN's Departmental Administrator, Olivia Speed, who can be contacted at

Staff can contact a range of support services available to all University staff.

Students also have a range of support services available to them.

The University has an anonymous reporting system.


We are always open to ideas and suggestions from staff and students in PDN on how we can improve ED&I for everyone: please reach out to any member of the Taskforce. We welcome any suggestions you have about how we can do more to address these important issues. You can contact us at
