EDI team members
Co-Leads of EDI in Psychology
Dr Ioanna Kapantai - Lecturer in Psychology
As a member of the Executive Team for the Department's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team, I lead on several initiatives including the Academic Peer Mentorship Scheme, the Autism Acceptance Week Event, the Decolonize Psychology bookclub and others.
Dr Joseph Sweetman - Senior Lecturer in Psychology
As well as Co-Lead of EDI in Psychology I am a steering group member of the BME staff, students and allies network. I’ve been involved in social, global, and environmental justice and union activism. It is my intent that students and staff from all diverse backgrounds and perspectives be well served by the university.
From my own perspective, science is a critical, collaborative enterprise that is ultimately driven forward by minority thinking. I’m motivated to make this college, and university, a more civilised place where the science, and society in general, can benefit.
