Equality, Diversity and InclusionA group in which everyone can thrive
The LSBU Group is one of the most diverse educational providers in the country and has a long history of having EDI at the heart of its work. Equality, Diversity and Inclusion isn’t something that we talk about on our website because we have to, we’re proud to say that EDI is woven into our very DNA. We’d love to welcome you to the LSBU family.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion statement
We are clear that we must be an inclusive and welcoming Group, committed to eliminating all forms of discrimination. We are committed to eliminating discrimination based on age, race, religion/belief, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, gender identity, marriage/civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, caring status and social class. This means that we will pro-actively work to eliminate individual, institutional, and systemic inequalities that currently exist within the University and Group. We will strive to influence the wider world and to positively impact on the society around us. We believe that it is not enough just to eliminate discrimination but that we must speak out and act against inequalities wherever and whenever they occur.
We will take guidance from the IHRA definition when investigating incidents of anti-Semitism.
Our vision is to transform lives, communities, businesses and society through education and insight.
We will not achieve our vision without being inclusive and while much has been achieved, there is still more to do. We know that with the whole LSBU Group working together, we can achieve this.
A long history of inclusion
We continue to be committed to advancing our efforts in race equality.
