Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The SFI Centre for Research Training (CRT) in Foundations of Data Science recognises the value of diversity among its staff, students, and supervisors. We have a strong belief in the rich benefits that different backgrounds and perspectives bring to problem-solving, decision-making, risk management, student engagement and more. We understand that creating a culture of inclusion is a long-term commitment involving a continuous process of self-assessment and improvement.

We will ensure that our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is visible in all that the CRT does. The current make-up of our CRT management, supervisors and students includes:

  • a 50/50 split of male and female academics on our Director and Vice-Director team;
  • 40%+ female students in our cohort of 113 students;
  • Greater than 40% female supervisors in our cohort of 100+ supervisors;
  • Students from 17 different countries around the world.

The CRT management wish to cultivate a community where all individuals are welcome and create an inclusive space for all to reach their full potential. To achieve this, the CRT will:

  • Promote a culture of celebrating diversity, where the principles of equality and inclusion are embedded in all aspects of our work and where everyone is valued and treated with dignity and respect.
  • Assess and monitor our recruitment processes to ensure that these are fair, transparent, and inclusive. Recruitment decisions are made by a gender-balanced panel.
  • Actively increase the participation and proportion of women in STEM-related activities.
  • Ensure that the gender dimension is considered in research content.
  • Manage and progress the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion agenda with the engagement of our students, staff and supervisors.
