Equality

Most graduate employers embrace equal opportunities and diversity in the workplace. They will recognise that employees from different backgrounds bring unique knowledge, skills and experience to their businesses.  However, some of you may have specific issues which may affect your career planning.

The Equality Act 2010 is the law which bans unfair treatment and helps achieve equal opportunities in the workplace and in wider society.

OneStirling is a new university initiative to outline our commitment to equality and diversity in every area of the university's activity and our aim to ensure that students and staff are treated fairly at all times.

The objective of the Diversity Group is to promote equal opportunities to people from every kind of minority background or lifestyle, including race, gender, disability, age, faith and sexual orientation. 

Equality & Human Rights Commission promotes and monitors human rights. It aims to protect, enforce and promote equality across the nine "protected" grounds - age, disability, gender, race, religion and belief, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, sexual orientation and gender reassignment.
