We are committed at the highest level to ensuring that equality, diversity and inclusion remain at the heart of all we do at NTU.
Dr Angie Pears, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team aims to embed equality and inclusivity throughout the organisation, enabling the University to excel in equality, dignity and diversity practice.
NTU is committed to sustaining a highly effective learning environment for our students and staff characterised by fairness, equality of opportunity, and the valuing of diversity. Principles of dignity and respect underpin all that we do, and the University has very clear expectations around how all members of its community treat – and are treated by – others.
As the destination of choice for an increasingly diverse group of students, we are keen to ensure that individual needs are met and that a sense of value and belonging is nurtured.
Employees can access our learning and development programme, find out about staff networks and information and source advice and resources to support their working life at NTU.
Managers have an additional layer of responsibility with regard to equality, diversity and dignity. Part of the manager’s role is to consider these issues in the design of services, learning, environments, policies and procedures as well as in managing teams and individuals.
