Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion
We are One Community, with staff and students working together to create an environment in which all people can flourish based on their abilities and their diverse and rich experiences. Equality, diversity and inclusion are essential values for our University to deliver on its civic mission. We are a member of the Race Equality Charter and hold an Athena Swan Bronze Award. However we are not complacent; we know there is much more to do to tackle inequality, prejudice, and discrimination within our own community and wider society. Race Equality Charter The University of Lincoln, UK, has received the prestigious Race Equality Charter Bronze Award for its efforts to tackle racial inequality. The University of Lincoln is 1 of only 21 UK universities to hold the the Bronze Award status from Advance HE, which recognises the work the University is doing to identify and reflect on institutional and cultural barriers facing Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students. Staff and students from across the University have played a huge part in the University gaining this recognition, including the self-assessment team. The self-assessment team, led by Simon Parks, was comprised of staff and students from across the university community, who directed our approach and gathered intelligence for our submission. The Eleanor Glanville Centre has been instrumental in driving the REC forward and producing the University’s submission and action plan. Looking forward, the University will be establishing a formal committee, ensuring the hard work continues to tackle racial inequality. The University will also be consistently engaging with staff and students from across the University to ensure all voices are heard and all members of our One Community have the opportunity to contribute.
