Equality, diversity and inclusion
We are committed to equality for all our students and employees. Our goal is to be as diverse as the community around us and for everyone in the department to value that diversity. We are on a programme of continuous improvement to help us achieve that aim.
Athena Swan Bronze Award
We are committed to promoting and nurturing an inclusive and equal culture where diverse perspectives and experiences are encouraged; where individuals are valued, respected and treated alike; where individuals of all backgrounds can come together and fully contribute their talents to our growing community.
The department currently holds an Athena Swan Bronze Award. The Athena Swan Charter promotes advancing gender equality in higher education.
We work closely with both the MPLS Divisional and University's Equality and Diversity Units fully supporting their commitment to 'fostering an inclusive culture which promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.'
Race Equality Strategy
The department is fully supportive of the University's Race Equality Strategy.
