Consultation with staff and students is an important part of the Equality Analysis process

Equality Analysis Consultations

A key aspect of the Equality Analysis (EA) process is consultation with staff and students. To effectively meet the needs of the diverse groups of people at the University it is important that we liaise with staff and students from different backgrounds who have experience of what the issues may be for people who identify with the protected characteristics*.

We ensure that we have catpured feedback from all students and staff, especially those that have personal experience of equality issues. This feedback is used to guide and appraise policy formation within the University. By drawing on the experiences of consultation respondents, we are able to address areas of perceived discrimination or bias.
