Gender Equality


Sex (Gender) Plan

The sex protected characteristic applies to staff and students, irrespective of their gender.

The University will continue to:

a. Staff Issues: challenge and eliminate sex discrimination, and promote equality of opportunity by improving our ability to recruit, retain, support and develop women and men staff.

b. Student Issues: carry out an analysis by sex of institution-wide surveys about the student experience and to learn from consultations with LUSU staff and officers, University service providers, managers and departmental equality & diversity representatives.
