Equality & Diversity

At UEL we are committed to working together to build a learning community founded on equality of opportunity - a learning community which celebrates 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 has achieved Athena SWAN Bronze status and we are working towards our Race Equality Charter Mark 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.


Complaints of discrimination on the grounds of the areas covered by this Policy should be brought using the appropriate Grievance Procedures for staff or students via the Dignity at Work and Study Policy.

Students, staff or members of the public may approach UEL managers, the Equality and Diversity Manager, HR Services, the Students Union or UEL’s other recognised trade union representatives at any time if they believe there has been a contravention of these policies or procedures.
