Our new Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility Committee

We are delighted to announce that we are establishing an Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity and Accessibility (EDIA) Committee. This new sub-committee, chaired by our Vice-President for EDIA Mr Martin Griffin, will ensure that we meet our EDIA responsibilities and oversee activities set out in our EDIA strategy, whilst providing accountability for delivering on our commitments and wider ambitions. 

We are seeking a diversity of volunteers from our Fellowship to join the EDIA sub-committee, who will meet virtually no more than four times a year. This new EDIA sub-committee will report into our External Relations Committee, which meets three three times a year, via our VP-EDIA. 

To learn more about the committee or to express your interest to join please email

Should you wish to apply, please provide a brief statement (no more than 500 words) or presentation or audio file, that addresses the questions below.

  • What do you think are the responsibilities of charities like GSL with respect to EDIA? 
  • What would you like to see GSL doing in terms of EDIA in the coming 18 months?
  • What skills and/or experience do you have that is relevant to this role?  

All applications received will have personally identifiable information removed to ensure anonymity; your statement should be anonymised and not include your name or institution. Your email will be separated from these statements before they are handed over for shortlisting.
