Laura York

I joined the Equality & Inclusion Unit as an Equality and Inclusion Officer in December 2019. I lead on the University’s disability work and religion or belief work, which support the Equality and Inclusion Framework, and aim to ensure that equality and inclusion is embedded in policy and practice across the organisation. My work supports the University’s ambition to create an inclusive environment that attracts, develops and retains the best students and staff from all backgrounds from across the world.

I have a degree in Politics from the University of Sheffield and a Masters in Disability Studies from the University of Leeds. I have worked in a variety of roles in the third sector and higher education, supporting disabled people to access education, volunteering and employment opportunities.

Laura is the E&I Business Partner for Faculty of Environment, Faculty of Social Sciences and Facilities Directorate.
