AI for the study of Environmental Risks (AI4ER)

UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training

The University provides on-line training to raise awareness of equality, diversity and inclusion issues as well as unconscious bias, which is a mandatory requirement for staff involved in the selection and supervision of students, and must be undertaken every 3 years. The AI4ER CDT also organises customised unconscious bias training for any staff involved in the teaching or training of AI4ER students. Springboard training is also offered to all staff and postgraduate students who identify as women via the University's personal and professional development programme. Springboard is an award-winning international development programme, specifically designed for women from all backgrounds, ages and at various stages in their lives and careers.

During induction week, the MRes students attend an ED&I information session that includes a discussion of what the students’ responsibilities are with respect to ED&I and what they should expect from the CDT, including information on how to report any issues. Information on ED&I training and mentorship throughout the CDT is also provided via the monthly student newsletter and through professional development study groups. 

The University also offers a wide variety of diversity and inclusion training through the Linkedin Learning platform, which is available for all staff and students.
