The University College for Interdisciplinary Learning (UCIL) allows you to study units from across the University that count towards your degree. UCIL offers several social justice units including their brand new online unit 'Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.'
This unit invites you to consider the concepts of privilege, dominance and power, and raise self-awareness to enhance your inclusive leadership potential. The unit explores Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in a range of contexts including the workplace, research and innovation, education and health and social care. It begins with a historical overview of social reform and legal frameworks around EDI and ends by providing you with the tools and frameworks to begin looking at your own role in driving EDI as inclusive future leaders. It is a unit that has been requested by the student body and draws on university-wide and external interdisciplinary expertise.
The unit aims to equip you with Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) based knowledge, skills and attributes, which are fundamental to employability and effective working within our global and interconnected world. It will empower you to take personal responsibility for promoting inclusive approaches to study and work, both here at Manchester and in your future lives and careers.
