Diversity and Equality


The University is committed to providing an environment which recognises and values people's differences, capitalises on the strengths that those differences bring to the institution and supports all staff and students in maximising their potential to succeed.

This commitment is made with specific reference to a person's age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religious belief and non belief, sex and sexual orientation. The University is committed to fulfilling its obligations under the Equality Act 2010.

The University of Liverpool is a member of:

  1. Athena SWAN Charter
  2. Bambis Breastfeeding Mayoral Charter
  3. Disability Confident
  4. Stonewall Diversity Champion

Further to our above memberships, we have made a commitment to sign up to Advanced HE’s Race Equality Charter with the explicit goal of eliminating any racial disparities for our staff and students wherever we may find them. Find out more about our planning for this commitment on our Race Equality pages.

Staff: please visit our Diversity and Equality intranet pages for further information on the University's commitment.
