Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) at ICAM

ICAM aims to attract, motivate, develop and retain the best talent from the diversity the world offers; our ability to be competitive and to thrive globally depends on it. We believe success comes from the energy of our people. Through living the values of safety, respect, excellence, courage and one team, ICAM creates an inclusive working environment where everyone can make a difference and give their best.

Steering Group

ED&I is of upmost importance to ICAM, with a steering group that meets twice a year to share best practice, lessons learnt across all institutions and present at the Annual Conference. ICAM’s key objective in this area is to support an ethos of continuous improvement in ED&I.

Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellowship

An established flagship ED&I initiative within ICAM is the Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellowship, launched in 2018. This fellowship fully supports outstanding academic researchers at the beginning of their independent research career, whose personal circumstances require a flexible working pattern or additional support.

Diversity Fund

In ED&I, a specific fund of £10k p.a. is available for ICAM academics/researchers to request financial support to overcome individual career barriers related to ED&I (e.g. wellbeing support, ED&I training costs, emergency childcare, travel support (e.g. for carer) to allow researcher participation in conferences or training, software or hardware to support disabilities).
