Equality and Diversity

As part of our commitment to equality and diversity, we have signed up to two national Higher Education equality charters – Athena SWAN, which focuses on gender equality and the Race Equality Charter.

Run by the Equality Challenge Unit, the charters enable us to apply for awards recognising our commitment to, and progress on, equality and diversity. They aim to drive forward the cultural and systemic changes we need to remain competitive and attractive to talented staff and potential students in a global market. They also support our University values and strategies.

More information about our approach and progress can be found on the Athena SWAN and Race Equality Charter pages.
