Equality and Diversity

Loughborough University is committed to achieving equality for all those who learn and work here and wish to develop a demonstrably fair and supportive environment which provides equality of opportunity and freedom from unlawful discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity (transsexual), marital or civil partnership status, disability, including mental health difficulties, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age, social class or offending background. We are proud of our diverse community and wish to encourage and celebrate its full contribution to a University life where all colleagues are treated equally and with respect.
The formal adoption of this policy is the concern not only of Heads of Departments, but also of every individual involved in the recruitment and selection process. Selectors must adhere to the principles in this policy statement to ensure that:
  1. They will comply with the legal requirements relating to the elimination of discriminatory practices
  2. They will be maximising the full potential of all staff available to them
  3. They will comply not only with the law, but also with the spirit of the law

Adopting the procedures outlined in this guide will help not only to ensure that discrimination does not occur, but also will assist in providing evidence of good practice when resisting any claims of discrimination which may be made to an Employment Tribunal.
