Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

CHE is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community, one in which diversity is recognised, valued and celebrated. We believe everyone should be able to achieve their potential, regardless of age, gender, gender reassignment, ethnicity, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity. CHE endeavours to provide a positive and supportive working environment, with an inclusive and friendly ethos, where staff feel a sense of belonging.

Equality, diversity and inclusion are defined as follows in the University of York equality, diversity and inclusion strategy:

  • Equality: A fundamental part of a fair society in which everyone can have the best possible chance to succeed in life.
  • Diversity: Recognising that everyone is different in a variety of visible and non-visible ways, and that those differences are to be recognised, respected and valued.
  • Inclusion: The active creation of a learning, working and social environment that is welcoming, which recognises and celebrates difference and is reflected in structures, practices and attitudes. 

We all have a role to play in embedding equality, diversity and inclusion in everything we do. We will continue to strive to ensure that CHE remains a truly welcoming and supportive environment for all.
