Gender Equality

We value the unique differences and needs that each of our colleagues bring to work every day. Together, we will strive to build an inclusive institution that reflects society.

Gender Equality Initiatives

A commitment to gender equality is fundamental to our University’s core values, ensuring our success as a high-performing global civic institution with a positive and supportive culture, where all staff and students feel empowered and respected. We are committed to dealing swiftly and effectively with any form of harassment, bullying or discrimination, to eliminating the professorial gender pay gap, and to mainstreaming gender equality into all our practices.
