Equity, Diversity & Inclusion


The Cobb Lab wishes to create a culture of equal opportunity and diversity, not just to promote equity, but also because evidence has linked a diverse culture to improved performance on both individual and organisation levels. We strive to support our group members from diverse backgrounds and especially welcome applications from under-represented groups, in particular women and people of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background. We aim to create a culture of equality by establishing behaviours that support and create an environment where every team member feels they belong, and where unequal systems and behaviours are challenged and reported. 

We strongly encourage our members to engage with issues related to ED&I, dedicating time in group meetings through "One minute for ED&I", completing training on unconscious bias and diversity in the workplace: https://www.staffnet.manchester.ac.uk/equality-and-diversity/training/ and following the University's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy
