Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) at Leeds are guiding principles for how we value everyone in the Leeds community equally as well as face the historic and current barriers obstructing equality and the incredible impact of falling short on marginalized people and communities. These ideals carry us forward as we strive to lead the most impactful role we can in building our culture at Leeds, educating the next generation of leaders, and leading impactful research that shapes the future.

We have a long-standing commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Leeds and celebrate our successes. That said, we recognize there is much important work to be done, beginning with acknowledging where we have fallen short and progressing to work in the many areas where we can have a larger impact going forward.  

This page acts as a location to inform students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the many members of the broader Leeds community that we are committed to ideals that push us all to be better. We will share the breadth of our work, share where our words and intentions become reality, and highlight the true impact. We will also seek to be honest and vulnerable in our inevitable shortcomings, knowing that accountability and constant learning are central to progress.
