Equality and diversity
We are committed to supporting, developing and promoting equality and diversity in all our practices and activities.
We aim to establish an inclusive culture free from discrimination and based upon the values of dignity, courtesy and respect. We recognise the right of every person to be treated in accordance with these values.
We are committed to advancing equality on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief (including lack of belief), sex and sexual orientation and to fostering good relations between different groups.
Our strategic equality plan aims to promote equality and achieve equality improvements across Cardiff University as required under the Equality Act 2010. The equality impact assessment planning tools enable higher education institutes to build equality into their policies. Progress of our strategic equality plan and an analysis of monitoring data for staff and students are available in our annual monitoring report.
