The University of Westminster is committed to supporting diversity and equal opportunities in our dealings with job applicants, students, staff and the public. We are fully committed to creating a stimulating and supportive learning and working environment based on mutual respect and trust. This will allow staff and students to reach their full potential, regardless of their age, disability, gender, gender identity, marital/civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, ethnic or national origins, family circumstances, nationality, political beliefs and affiliations, socio-economic background, or other irrelevant distinction.
We will continue to respect and value diversity within our communities of staff and students, to promote equality of opportunity, and to challenge and strive to eliminate unlawful discrimination.
The University acknowledges the special role of higher education in promoting equality of opportunity and furthering social inclusion. We recognise that ensuring equality of opportunity is essential for the high-quality performance and long-term success of the University. All staff and students have rights and responsibilities in relation to the promotion of equality of opportunity, as acknowledged by the Single Equality policy.
