Equality and Diversity

The University of Bedfordshire is committed to promoting equality and diversity in all of its activities. We aim to enable students and staff to reach their full potential, and provide them with an environment which is free from unfair and unlawful discrimination.

We work with staff and students including the University of Bedfordshire Students' Union (Beds SU) to promote and advance equality and diversity across all of our campuses. Our work mirrors the aims and principles contained within the University's Equality & Diversity Policy - PDF 204.4 KB .

The Protected Characteristics

With the emergence of the Equality Act 2010 including the provisions on public sector general and specific duties, the University continues to be committed towards working to eliminate discrimination, harassment, advancing equality and fostering good relations in respect of all protected characteristics which relate to its students, staff and general users of its variety of services, namely:

  • Age

  • Gender Reassignment and Trans issues in general
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and Maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or Belief, including people who do not have a religion or belief.

Our Equality Objective

To develop our people for new ways of working.

We will do this by:

Delivering business-focussed learning and development activities which support and embed the changes in culture and skills required to support new ways of working.

In particular, we will deliver a range of training and development programmes to build the competence and confidence of staff on equality, diversity and human rights and build the leadership and decision-making skills of our senior managers.
