RDM, in line with the University, fosters an inclusive culture which promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.

As part of its Integrated Equality Policy the University of Oxford aims to assist  staff and students in reaching their full potential.

The University and RDM will work to remove any barriers which might deter people of the highest potential and ability from applying to Oxford, either as staff or students.

For more information please visit the Equality and Diversity Unit webpage. There you will find general information as well a specific information and support regarding:

online training

To help both promote equality and diversity and understand unconscious bias and its impact in the workplace, RDM has made it mandatory for all staff to complete Unconscious Bias and Equality and Diversity online training.

Staff who have already completed these online courses in the last three years or attended a training session on Unconscious Bias are not required to complete the same training again. Staff who have completed the NHS Equality & Diversity training course in the past three years and are able to provide evidence to their local personnel officers are also exempt.

Please note that in order for the system to register that you have completed these courses, it is essential to get to the very last screen before exiting the modules. On this screen, you will be able to select the option to print a certificate and we encourage you to print a copy for your records. If you have any specific queries about the training, please contact your local personnel officer, who will be able to advise you further.
