Equality and diversity

Equal opportunities statement

At Harper Adams University we value equality, diversity and inclusion. We create equal opportunities and develop good working relationships between different people. We make every effort to eliminate unlawful discrimination.

Discrimination means treating someone unfairly because of who they are. The Equality Act 2010 protects you from discrimination at work. You will not be discriminated against for any of the following reasons (“protected characteristics”):

  • age
  • gender reassignment
  • being married or in a civil partnership
  • being pregnant or on maternity leave
  • disability
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation
