Equality and Diversity

De Montfort University (DMU) is committed to driving forward fairness, equality and inclusion for all of our staff, students, visitors and contractors.

In doing so, we recognise our specific responsibilities to individuals and groups protected by the Equality Act 2010 characterised by:

  • Gender reassignment/identity - transgender men and women
  • Marriage and civil partnership

  • Religion or Belief
  • Sex

We believe that working towards the elimination of unlawful discrimination and harassment, promoting good relationships across the university in our local, national and global communities and advancing equality of opportunity helps to make DMU a diverse, vibrant and friendly place to study and work.

DMU expects all of its staff, students, partners (UK and International) to be treated and to treat individuals and groups, with dignity and respect, with fairness and inclusivity, regardless of any protected characteristics (as listed above).
