Promoting diversity in committee representation
Council is committed to achieving greater diversity of representation in governance. Information about what the elections are, the benefits of standing for election, and the need to improve diversity of representation and ensure inclusivity, can be found at: https://governance.admin.ox.ac.uk/elections
The list of this term's vacancies to share is available at: https://governance.admin.ox.ac.uk/current-elections
There are currently over 40 vacancies advertised, from positions on Council and the Visitors of the Ashmolean to a number of divisional and faculty boards. If people are ineligible for these roles, but interested in getting involved in the University’s governance at a divisional and departmental level - especially if they have an interest in the remit of a particular committee - the advice is to let the Head of MPLS Division or their Head of Department know. Alternatively, look at the list of University committees and contact committee secretaries directly, to ask about current and forthcoming opportunities.
