Equity Advisors

The Equity Leadership Council (ELC) is established to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels of the University. Comprised of members, Equity Advisors, from across all academic and administrative support divisions of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the Equity Leadership Council serves as an advisory council to the Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer. Comprised of students, faculty, and staff from UAB enterprise, the ELC works to help UAB achieve its goals of promoting diversity and institutionalizing equity and inclusion as core values.

Equity Advisors have a central role in raising awareness, promoting understanding, diversity education, and monitoring the faculty and staff search and other hiring processes, and consultation on matters of equity. Equity Advisors leverage their direct experience with local culture to advise their deans regarding strategy, policy, diversity education, climate, and accountability. Although Equity Advisors report directly to their deans and department administrators, they also work closely with and provide invaluable advice to UAB's Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. They also serve as a resource for their colleagues within the school.
