Our strategy

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy sets out our aims for the next three years and is shaped by ideas shared by colleagues, students, alumni, partners, and members of the wider Manchester city region.

It takes a holistic approach that celebrates individuals and their many identities, extending beyond our statutory obligations, so that we become a truly inclusive organisation where EDI is embedded in all that we do and who we are.

Our community helped shape this strategy and the three key priorities: Inclusive environment and culture, Diversity and equity across our community, Inclusive practice.

Inclusive environment and culture

We will create an inclusive, diverse and accessible environment where it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure all members of our University community are treated with fairness, dignity, respect and have a sense of belonging. 

This will be reflected in our structures, our priorities and how we interact with each other.

Diversity and equity across our community

We will ensure diversity across all areas of our University community so that we are reflective of our city region, nationally and globally.

Inclusive approach and equality at all stages of student and staff recruitment through policies, practices and guidance.

Inclusive practice

We will create an environment where all staff and students feel supported and are encouraged to achieve their full potential.
