Maria Granell Moreno
Equality and Diversity Advisor
Working to make NDORMS a more inclusive and supportive workplace for everyone.
I develop and deliver the department’s Athena Swan initiatives and innovate our approach to the Athena Swan principles, to ensure NDORMS embraces, values and supports our staff and students at all levels.
I have successfully led three Athena SWAN awards since 2012, working closely with the HR and Communications Teams, as well as the Athena SWAN working group and our Head of department. Our awards over the years recognise our efforts to promote a diverse and inclusive culture for all our staff and students.
I develop, monitor and coordinate departmental schemes to support staff development and career progression and deliver Implicit Bias training across de University facilitating staff’s understanding and raising awareness about bias impact in the workplace. I am also an NDORMS Anti Bullying and Harassment advisor.
I believe that difference and diversity are a strength. I joined the LGBT+ Allies community because I am convinced that every human being should be able and free to be themselves in (and outside of) the workplace.(https://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/eop/sexualorientation/allies/).
I am passionate about equality and proud to be part of a team who genuinely believes in change.
I have a degree in Law from Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona, and a Masters in Mediation, Conflict Management and Resolution from Barcelona University. I am also an accredited Workplace Mediator. Before joining the department, I worked as a family and community mediator for four years. That professional journey reminded me that conflict is a part of life and it is the way we choose to manage it that makes a difference. I am currently a volunteer mediator at the Student Resolution Service at SWSS ( https://www.ox.ac.uk/students/welfare/student-resolution-service?wssl=1 )
I am a sleep-deprived mum of two incredible little human beings, allowing myself to forget packed lunches or PE kits every now and then. Life lover and baker apprentice.
