Key Initiatives and Achievements

This section of the EDI Annual Report 2021-22 explains the many ways that the University of Sunderland have achieved the social responsibility of promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion.

"Publishing this year’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion report is an opportunity to reflect on all the achievements that we have delivered in the year 2021-22.  It is also an opportunity to step back and celebrate the work we’ve done as an organisation to create an environment where people are encouraged to be themselves and to speak up about the issues that matter to them.

It sets out not just how we will ensure a more inclusive, equal and diverse workplace, but why. More importantly, it gives us a further platform for progress and accountability. I am particularly proud of the members of our Employee Networks, who represent the very best of the University – they’re passionate, honest, and relentless in advocating for change."
