Equality, Diversity and Inclusion


Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Newcastle is an inclusive community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

We value individual differences and the diversity that this brings. We want to ensure that no-one is at a disadvantage because of who they are.

Through our institutional EDI strategy and Equality Objectives, dedicated working groups, events and projects we aim to create a positive, supportive culture for everyone to reach their potential. Our commitment to diversity extends beyond our duties under the Equality Act and Public Sector Equality Duty.

Newcastle University has now published its Annual EDI Report 2023, which incorporates our progress against our Equality Objectives, our equality monitoring data and our Gender Pay Gap Report.

Newcastle University ensures that equality and diversity remain at the top of our agenda by entrusting a dedicated Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team with our mission.

The EDI team provide strategic direction as well as monitoring how well we are doing at embedding the values of equality and diversity across the University.

We are committed to developing a fully inclusive community that values diversity.
