Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

UK DRI Diversity and inclusion statement

Connectome Crowd Red

Dementia affects everyone. The team that tackles it needs to reflect that.

Collaboration and connection are at the heart of how we take on the challenge of making breakthroughs in dementia research. A national institute with an international staff, our scientists and support staff are united in working to bring new therapies and new hope to people with dementia.

Prioritising inclusivity isn’t just the right thing to do – diversity of experience, perspectives and backgrounds increases innovation in science. Our efforts to increase the diversity of our team, ensure inclusion and promote equality of opportunity, align with our vision for the UK DRI’s Institute culture and identity as a world-leader in dementia research.

Being welcoming is key to the UK DRI’s values. We are committed to creating an environment that is stimulating, supportive, and values each individual for who they are and what they bring to our community.

We are courageous and determined. We challenge ourselves to promote inclusion in every sense and embrace change in our working practices to meet the needs of our people.

Our people are energetic and perceptive, but most of all they are passionate about world-leading research. We believe that science flourishes when people from every background and walk of life are involved.

Our six host universities share our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

- Cardiff
- Edinburgh
