Key Initiatives

Our work in embedding Equality, Diversity and inclusion throughout Durham University is centred around five key strands of work.

Key strands:

Access and Disability

We are a Disability Confident Employer and we work with our Occupational Health service and external partner organisations and schemes.

Faith, Religion and Belief

Durham University is very inclusive and supportive of students and staff of all faiths and none.

Gender Equality and Athena Swan

Fundamental to achieving our gender parity objectives is how we approach the recruitment, retention and promotion of our staff.
