At Lincoln, we challenge the traditional approach to equality, diversity and
inclusion (EDI). We bring about the changes needed to create a diverse and
inclusive environment by adopting transformational and progressive practices,
founded on the need to ask questions, to challenge, to seek solutions, to look
for evidence of change, to measure impact. We take a systems-based approach,
working holistically across the whole institution to change the embedded
structures and processes that lead to inequalities and isolation.
At the heart of our work is the Eleanor Glanville Institute ─ the University's
strategic lead for EDI. The Institute is a unique ‘hybrid' department where
academics and professional services staff work together, forging researcher-
practitioner collaborations to underpin our inclusive practices by research,
to develop new robust interventions informed by research, and to evaluate our
impact and progress towards achieving our ambitions.
Our aim is to support and stimulate greater diversity across the University in
both staff and students, and research and teaching, to foster a greater sense
of belonging for all ─ because belonging improves learning. Our work on
reducing the ethnic minority attainment gap, well ahead of the sector, tells
Genuinely exploring different perspectives – whether from our culture, our
ethnicity, our sex, our sexual orientation, disability, beliefs or our
identity – challenges established ideas and enables us to create new insight
and make new discoveries. It's not just who is doing the research that
matters, but what research is being done, how the research is being
done, who is being talked to, whose stories are being included.
The Eleanor Glanville Institute is now looking to complete its founding staff
group of fourteen and is keen to recruit a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer to
join our academic team. The postholders will contribute to the development of
the Institute's research portfolio in an EDI-related subject area.
We want our team to thrive on difference, value ‘disagreeing well', and have
deep curiosity across disciplines.
We'd be very keen to hear from you if you are able to approach ideas and
challenges in the field of EDI with openness to others' approaches and
perspectives, are keen to seek out new perspectives, are able to contribute to
the atmosphere of constructive challenge we want to build within the Institute
and the University, are able to communicate to audiences, within and outside
academia, issues in relation to EDI that are often personally testing. If you
can bring us originality and effectiveness in your ideas and ways of working
that will help to achieve this kind of change, then please do get in touch.
