Diversity & 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 & 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 the Athena SWAN Charter for Women in Science and Engineering (Institutional Bronze Award), a Stonewall Diversity Champion (Top 100 in 2013 and 2014 Workplace Equality Index), and a member of the Two Ticks: Positive about Disabled People charter.‌
