Equalities, diversity and inclusion (EDI)

We celebrate our diverse Goldsmiths community, and we know that our students andalumni have a lot of talent to bring to the world. We are here to help ensure this happens, but we know we have a lot of work still to do.

We strive to support, equip, and empower our students in their career development, so that they can fulfil their potential. We want our students to feel confident about bringing together their authentic selves, their lived experiences, and their unique Goldsmiths education to their professional lives and wider society.

We aim to do this by providing a multifaceted careers offer that all students can engage with. Research shows that there are barriers to career progression, particularly for our underrepresented communities. Our Careers and Employability team actively engages in widening participation, supporting students into graduate employment.

This includes challenging biases and unfair practices, collaborating with employers, academics and other stakeholders who share our equality diversity and inclusive values to help students develop career readiness and achieve their aspirations.

We believe as a community that we all have a role to play in challenging inequality wherever it exists. Furthermore, it is important that we acknowledge historical legacies that have led to underrepresentation in business and society.

We are committed to addressing barriers to opportunities, challenging pre-conceived ideas about graduate talent, and elevating the strengths of our underrepresented communities, enabling all to succeed in reaching their careers goals.
