Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Good practice in equality, diversity and inclusion creates stronger communities, happier and more effective workforces, and greater ideas and opportunities for our staff and our students. 

The university’s Equality Objectives 2017-2020 aim to support our ongoing commitment to fostering a values-based culture focused on diversity, inclusivity, wellbeing and positive engagement. To help track the progress, the university provides annual diversity data of both staff and students.

Annual Activity Report

The Annual activity report provides a summary of some of the key activities which contribute to our EDI ambitions.  



Pay gap reporting

In 2017, the Government introduced legislation that made it statutory for organisations with 250 or more employees to report annually on their gender pay gap. The University of Nottingham is covered by the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 which came into force on 31 March 2017.

These regulations underpin the Public Sector Equality Duty and require the relevant organisations to publish their gender pay gap data by 30 March 2018, and then annually thereafter.

We also publish the university's Ethnicity Pay Gap data. Although not mandatory, sharing the pay gap between white and BAME staff and male and female staff is a key step towards understanding the gap and developing actions to reduce it.
