Vice Chancellor's Diversity Awards

vc awards branding

Across the University there is a tremendous amount of effort being put into advancing equality and diversity, but in an institution as large and devolved as Oxford these efforts can often go unnoticed. The Vice-Chancellor’s Diversity Awards were established in 2018 to make initiatives – and individual commitment – more visible.

To see all those shortlisted and winners in each category please visit the Vice Chancellor's Diversity Awards webpage

The next awards will take place in Trinity 2020. Nominations will open in January 2020 and further information will be available on this webpage closer to the time.

The Vice Chancellor will award prizes in four categories:

  • Individual Champion or Role Model (nominated by others; use 'Champion' form);
  • Innovation in promoting E&D in the workplace or in the student body (self-nominated; use 'Projects' form);
  • Promoting E&D through public and community engagement (self-nominated; use 'Projects' form);
  • Promoting E&D in learning and teaching (self-nominated; use 'Projects' form).

So if there’s someone who’s inspired you, or has championed a cause close to your heart, please nominate them for ‘Individual Champion or Role Model’. If you’re involved in any activity or initiative that has fostered or promoted greater equality or diversity in the University, please consider nominating yourself for one of the categories, so you can tell others about the work, and share good practice. 

Nominations can be made by any staff member or student in the collegiate University, and anyone who works or studies at the collegiate University can be nominated. We cannot accept nominations from external groups or individuals, unless there is a strong link to the University (collaboration etc), and nominations of this type may be given a lower priority than those from within the University.

Nominations will be judged by two panels:

  • An initial longlisting of nominations will be done by an Advisory Panel, consisting of representatives of the EDU and Divisional E&D/Athena SWAN committees.
  • The final decision on shortlisted nominations and award winners will be made by a judging panel, chaired by the PVC and Advocate for Equality and Diversity, and comprising the PVC (Education), a representative from Oxford SU, a representative from the University's equality networks, three representatives from the divisions, the Chair of the E&D Forum of the Conference of Colleges, and an external representative.
