Equality Data

Staffordshire University has monitored a range of equality characteristics for both staff and students for many years. This data has been used to monitor our performance against equality targets, to highlight any areas where we need to improve, and inform objectives. Our monitoring is in line with HESA requirements.

Athena Swan

We are preparing our submission for an Athena SWAN University Bronze Award. Athena SWAN focuses on improving progression for women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

Race Equality Charter Mark

We have recently been successful in gaining an Institutional Bronze Award under the Equality Challenge Unit new Race Equality Charter. This has meant analysing staff and student data around ethnicity, identifying any inequalities and demonstrating how we intend to tackle these.


We have been a Stonewall Diversity Workplace Champion since 2012. In 2014 we entered the Workplace Index for the first time coming 243 - a very respectable placing for a first attempt. We are using the feedback gained from Stonewall to make progress towards LGBT equality.
