Equality and Diversity Office

The Equality and Diversity Office is a centre for advice, guidance and good practice for our staff and student community. Our vision is to ensure that equality, diversity and inclusion are embedded at all levels of the institution and considered in everything the University does.

If you would like to contact the team directly to discuss how we can further promote the University of York as a truly inclusive place to work, study, live and socialise, please do get in touch.
