Inclusion and Diversity
In line with The Academy's firm commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion (see below), we offer all postdoctoral and research-related staff opportunities to develop and network irrespective of a researcher’s gender, ethnicity, age, self-identification, disability, religious affiliation, or any other criteria used to separate and define.
We incorporate inclusive and accessible event checklists – for organisers, presenters and participants – for all our online and in-person events, and liaise closely with our UoL Staff Networks during the design and organisation stages for all the activities we lead. These include the BAME Network, the Disability Network, the LGBTQ Network and the Female ECR Network.

Did you know?...Around 75% of Liverpudlians have Irish roots, and Liverpool has the strongest Irish heritage of any UK city. Due to the close proximity of the ports, many people fled Ireland to escape The Great Famine between 1845 and 1849, and by 1851, more than 20% of Liverpool’s population was Irish.
International Slavery Museum
Liverpool played a significant role in the transatlantic slave trade. Liverpool's ships delivered over 1.1 million enslaved people from West Africa to the the Americas where they were sold as chattel labour. Ships returned to Liverpool laden with sugar, coffee, tobacco, rice, and later, raw cotton, to be processed in Manchester's mills. Profits from the "triangular trade flooded into Liverpool, laying the foundations for the city's future growth.
