About Us

We are the Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS) Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Team. We believe that a welcoming and inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated brings strength to our Faculty, and allows everyone to reach their full potential. Thus, our vision is to bridge the gap between aspiration and reality for equality, diversity and inclusivity at Newcastle University, and become a place in which equality is engrained in everything we do.

The purpose of our blog is to share highlights, stories and examples of our work and good practice both within the FMS and the wider university, but also to discuss areas in which more work is still needed across the sector. We will be raising awareness of our events, campaigns and work, as well as showcasing the opportunities that are available to staff and students.

For further information on what we do and the support we offer, you can visit our website. You can also follow our Twitter (@FMSDiversityNCL) to keep up to date with what’s going on.


We would love you to leave comments with your thoughts and suggestions. All comments will be moderated and you do not need to give your name.
