Developing diverse leaders


Studies have highlighted the crucial importance of leaders in supporting change and nurturing a culture of inclusion and diversity. Given the increasing diversity of students coming to study at Royal Holloway, and the increasing internationalisation of the workforce, it has never been more important to offer fair and equitable access to opportunities. The College recognises the need to improve overall staff diversity in its senior ranks, and is committed to encouraging the development of individuals from all backgrounds.
