Gender (Sex) Equality
Sex is one of the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. The Act gives protection to both men and women.
The University does not tolerate any form of sex discrimination which it recognises is unacceptable, discriminatory and unlawful, and is proactive in ensuring that people are treated fairly. This commitment is consistent with the significant progress that the University has already made in this area.
The University recognises the valuable contribution that can be made by staff and students regardless of their sex, in terms of qualities of experiences brought to learning, teaching, support services, research, consultancy, enterprise, widening participation, administration and management.
