EDI Forum Launch new Finished 12:30 - 14:00 Cambridge University Library, Milstein Room

Over the past year, we have been doing quite a bit of thinking about how we ensure that our approach to EDI is, literally, inclusive. As a first step, we are launching an EDI Forum which, as a Non-School Institution Equality and Diversity Champion, Kirsty Allen will chair and Natalie Deighton will co-ordinate.
