Equalities at AUB – Diversity Enhancing Creativity
What is equality?
Equality is about creating a fairer society, where everyone can participate and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Equality is the underlying principle which entitles everyone to freedom from unfair discrimination. The emphasis of good equalities practice is to provide an environment which encourages positive attitudes to difference and equal opportunities for all.
AUB’s Equalities Statement
All members of the University community including staff, students, visitors and contractors have a responsibility to treat others fairly and respectfully regardless of the characteristics which may define their identity, such as age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation. The University is responsible for providing a working and learning environment founded on dignity, respect and equity where discrimination of any kind is treated with the utmost seriousness.
Whether you are a member of the University’s community, a visitor or you work with us in any capacity, you have a duty to adhere to the Equalities Statement at all times in the course of your day to day activities.
The Equalities Strategy 2012-2015 describes how the Arts University Bournemouth aims to advance its moral, social and legal obligations to put equalities at the heart of every area of activity. The strategy is intended to ensure that every member of the University’s community is treated fairly and respectfully regardless of the characteristics that may define their identity. It seeks to do more than simply ‘promote’ equalities and is focused on outcomes and real progress.
