King’s College London has a dedicated Diversity & Inclusion Team based at our Waterloo campus.
King’s is committed to creating an inclusive environment that promotes equality of opportunity for everyone in its community. King’s values the diversity of its staff and student body, and recognises that this is both a strength and a defining feature of King’s as a London university in a global context. Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of King’s Strategic Vision 2029. A key guiding principle of this vision is to create an inclusive environment where all individuals are valued and able to succeed. King’s aims to embed inclusion in its practice and culture to provide an extraordinary student experience and to be an employer of choice. King’s will not tolerate discrimination, victimisation or harassment.
Flexible Working, Parents & Families
King’s recognises the importance of creating choice for individuals and families in how they look after dependants and have developed our benefits and resources with this in mind.
Policies and information can be found on the King’s Parents’ & Carers’ Hub (internal page).
King's has set up a new Parents & Carers' Network which aims to support staff who have parental and caring responsibilities through the running of informal events, setting up an online community, and by providing advice and representation at strategic and policy level.
Support & Networks
Communities are an integral part of the experience at Kings. Being a part of a staff network can have transformative effects on our involvement with the organisation, as well as a great way to make friends and have participation in key decision making and strategic level processes.
