Equality, diversity and inclusion in the School of Science

Plans and measures for promoting equality among the School of Science community.

The School of Science aims to offer everyone an equal working environment in which employees and students representing different genders, backgrounds and positions are treated equally. Our common goal is to maintain a good atmosphere for studying and working at the university.

The Aalto University Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Plan (EDI plan) supports the continuous promotion of equality and inclusion at the Aalto University. The EDI plan is based on the strategy and values of the university. The EDI Committee of Aalto University supports the planning, implementation and monitoring of Aalto University’s values and equality. Development Manager of the school represents School of Science in the committee.

To support the fulfilment and follow-up of the objectives of the EDI plan, the EDI Committee prepares a separate implementation plan that is revised on an annual basis. The schools and joint units prepare their own practical action plans based on the university's EDI plan.

EDI work at the School of Science

At the School of Science, EDI work is coordinated by the equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) group. The EDI group works together with the Dean, the HR and education management, communications, and other central parties. The EDI group follows the development of diversity and the progress of the EDI work at the school. Its goal is to prevent possible problems and address any occurring ones swiftly.

The school has a concrete Equality, diversity and inclusion action plan which is based on the Aalto level EDI plan. The school plan is reevaluated and specified on an annual basis.
