Equality & Diversity

Equality & Diversity

At UEL we are committed to working together to build a learning and working environment that reflects the principles and ideology of equity we believe strongly in. We are a community founded on equality of opportunity and strive to continuously celebrate the rich diversity of our student and staff populations.

UEL’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) strategy sets out a framework to deliver an environment and culture that is truly inclusive where:

  • all individuals have equality of opportunity to succeed, and
  • the diversity of the UEL community is valued, celebrated and staff and students are supported to be the best they can be.

UEL achieved the Athena SWAN Bronze status in 2017, with some of our Schools also achieving the Bronze status individually. We also achieved the Race Equality Charter Mark Bronze status in 2019 and are actively working on fulfilling the action plans set out in the submission.

Collecting data

UEL will use both quantitative and qualitative measures of various equality and diversity-related data, benchmarking against external data where possible. This will include demographic data using staff and student data systems, staff, and student satisfaction levels through surveys (both national and internal) and any other insightful measure. An annual staff and student profile report is produced.

 As part of the recruitment process, no personal data (.e.g. ethnicity, gender, disability etc) will be used to inform decisions and will be stored in line with the Data Protection Act 2018, to assist the University to continuously develop its policies and services to be inclusive, fair and transparent.
