Annual reports

The University publishes equality and diversity data annually to assess the progress made and challenges faced in achieving our equality and diversity objectives.

The report also sets out the equality-related data that has been gathered during the year and makes recommendations for future action.

Please contact the Diversity and Inclusion Advisor Yasmin Ahmed for more information or to provide any comment.
