Published: 23 June 2023

The Faculty is delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Kathy Kendall as the new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) lead.

Professor Kendall has a long-standing interest in ED&I, a real depth of knowledge and expertise and a strong research interest. As well as her work for the faculty in this area, she is also Southampton’s representative at the UK Medical Schools Council ED&I Alliance.

Professor Kendall will be drawing together an overview of all the amazing work going on across the Faculty in ED&I, including both staff and students. Mapping the whole picture will help her spot the gaps and work out where our efforts will be most effectively focused on the future.

In this role, Professor Kendall will be a core, standing member of the Faculty ED&I Committee which meets regularly throughout the year, and will represent the Faculty of Medicine at the University ED&I forum. It is expected Professor Kendall will begin the role from 1 July, for an initial term of three years.
