EPSRC is committed to a long-term plan of action around equality, diversity, and inclusion and have developed an EDI action plan that sets out our priorities for 2022 to 2025. EPSRC has detailed initial actions and expected outcomes across five action sets.

Our action plan sets out why EDI is important for the engineering and physical sciences. It also sets out the context to our activities by outlining the composition of our community and the known challenges that are encountered as people progress their research and innovation career pathways.

We have developed our action plan in the context of the development of the first edition of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) EDI Strategy and associated UKRI shared EDI actions.

We aspire to ensure EDI for all who work in EPSRC. Our actions on internally facing EDI work are included within the UKRI workforce plan and the EPSRC people plan. We will actively listen and value everyone who works for and with EPSRC and demonstrate respectful and inclusive behaviours to each other and everyone we work with.
