About the University of Leicester

A culture of equality, diversity and inclusion

Tree made of handprintsOur Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy sets out our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion from 2017 to 2021. It is a public declaration of our commitment to develop a community that is fully inclusive, recruiting and retaining staff and students from all sectors of society.

Our strategic objectives for enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion 2017-2021 

Our strategic objectives for valuing equality and advancing diversity and inclusion build on commitments made within the Discovering People Strategy (2016), which supports the University’s wider Strategic Plan (2015). Our objectives translate how we will meet these commitments through our Equality Action Plan, which sets out our priority actions, timescales, key performance indicators and targets. 

  1. Embed equality, diversity and inclusion into all aspects of University life 
  2. Use robust reliable equalities data to target our activities 
  3. Attract, retain, develop and support an excellent diverse staff and student population 
  4. Provide evidence of progress and clear measurable action in equality charters
