Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Foundations

A self-directed course, created by students, researchers and experts from Bath, to guide you through key topics related to equality, diversity, and inclusion.

This flexible, self-directed online course will guide you through five modules designed by University of Bath students, to provide a foundation in key areas of equality, diversity, and inclusion (ED&I) work. The learning modules will support you to reflect upon and address your unconscious biases and consider how you can be an ally to marginalised groups.

About the modules

The five modules cover:

  • Why Equality, Diversity & Inclusion matters
  • Unconscious bias
  • Privilege
  • Microaggressions and discrimination
  • Allyship

The modules are designed to be used by students but could also be useful for staff too.

Working through the modules

We would strongly recommend working through the modules in consecutive order, but you can also access each of them independently if there’s a particular area you’d like to focus on.

Please remember to prioritise your own sense of safety and well-being - we all have different lived experiences, and there are some activities and content which could be triggering, so do take a break or skip these areas if you need to and seek support where you feel it’s helpful.

Introduction from the course leader

Hear from Lateesha, an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion specialist who has recently completed her PhD at Bath. She will lead you through each of the modules.
