Equality, diversity and inclusion

Equality and diversity policy statement

We are fully committed to equal opportunities at the University of Greenwich – and that means everyone.

Staff are selected and treated solely on the basis of their merits, abilities and potential, regardless of sex, colour, ethnic or national origin, race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, religious or political beliefs, trade union membership, marital status or family circumstances.

Guidance and training

We provide guidance and training in equal opportunities issues for our staff, so that they:

  • Treat others with respect at all times
  • Actively discourage discriminatory behaviour or practice
  • Participate in training and learning opportunities that would enable them to adopt good practice.

Unfair and discriminatory practices

We are committed to a programme of action to change unfair and discriminatory practices wherever they occur. This includes providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for work and study, in which everyone has the opportunity to contribute to his or her full potential.  

The university will:

  • Publicise and raise awareness of this statement and its supporting policies among staff
  • Operate a fair, open and transparent procedure for the recruitment of staff
  • Provide fair and accessible opportunities for training and promotion for staff
  • Operate fair and transparent procedures for student assessment, progression and attainment of awards
  • Promote the use of inclusive language and avoid the use of words or phrases which are discriminatory or exclusive in all university publications and correspondence
  • Introduce new and update existing policies and procedures which support our equal opportunities programme.
