E & D Committee Remit

We note the E&D statement of the University, which should guide the aims of the Department’s E&D committee.
“The University of Cambridge is committed in its pursuit of academic excellence to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach to equality, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity.”
 
The purposes of the Department of Veterinary Medicine E&D committee, which reports to the Strategy & Executive Committee are:      

-    To promote an inclusive culture in the Department which values diversity
-    To engage with and implement University-wide initiatives on equality and diversity
-    To identify equality and diversity issues that are specific to the Department and develop and apply action plans to address these issues
-    To engage with the Athena SWAN charter, which includes gathering data and preparing submissions for Athena SWAN Awards, implementing action plans and promoting the principles of Athena SWAN.
 
The E&D committee will meet twice per term.
 
Members will be appointed for a period of 3 years, with optional renewal for a further term to ensure continuity. The committee will be composed of representatives from all staff and student groups, including the HoD or another Professor.

The 2020 Marjory Stephenson Prize is awarded to Professor Julian Parkhill FRS, from the Dept of Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge.

Professor Parkhill is known for his research on bacterial genomes, which he has worked on since the very earliest days of genomics. Initially analysing reference genomes for many important human and animal pathogens, his group moved on to comparative genomics and subsequently large-scale population genomics, as new technologies developed.
