College EDI Statement

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

Pioneering. Progressive. Fearless. 

Since its foundation in 1869, Girton College has led the way in educational empowerment. Girton College values its people for the differences they bring to the organisation. We believe diversity to be powerful and enabling.

Fostering an inclusive culture helps each of us to benefit from a wide range of these different perspectives, experiences and skills. This creates a healthier, happier, more productive environment where all members our community can thrive. 

We are committed to protecting the dignity of all members of our community in their work, their study, and their interactions with each other, and to protecting the dignity of all those who visit or interact with the College. We are committed to maintaining a learning, living, and working environment in which the rights and dignity of all members of the College community are respected and valued for their contribution, irrespective of their sex, gender identity (including reassignment), marital, parental or partnership status, race, ethnic or national origin, colour, disability, sexuality, religion or belief, class, socio-economic status, and age. 

All members of this community have the right to be treated with respect by others, and a corresponding responsibility to behave in this way towards others. 


Founded as Britain's first residential institution for the higher education of women, Girton understands that excellence is about inclusion
