Exploring Equality and Diversity resources

These resources have been selected in support of the OU's commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). You will find books, articles, journals and more to learn about these topics.

This is a work in progress – we will add resource lists in relation to more events, issues, and communities. We will also continue to update existing lists.

We would love to hear your thoughts on these pages. If you have an idea for a topic to cover or an item to add to a resource list, please contact us.
