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.

Autism Awareness

These resources have been selected in celebration of Autism Awareness Week. They discuss the experiences of autistic people and their families, covering autism in the context of technology, employment, education, language and literature, family life, independence, and health.

Black History

Resources highlighting Black history and Black authors, artists, politicians, inventors and more selected by the University's BME network and the Friends of BME. Resources here also include books, articles and other items on anti-racist activism. 


Featuring resources featured in our Pride coverage, focussing on LGBTQ+ history and activism as well as LGBTQ+ authors, artists, and others.
