Equality and Diversity

The Department of Education strives to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We recognise the structural and systemic nature of gender inequalities and seek to address them through policies, processes and practice.

Education at York was the first Education department in the UK to receive Gender Equality Mark Bronze award, attained in 2014. In October 2018, we were awarded a Bronze award under the new and expanded Athena SWAN scheme.
