Learning to work as part of a diverse team, and understanding a wide range of customers are important skills for employability, particularly as we work in an increasingly global business context. These are all part of becoming a Staffordshire Graduate.
If you are a Students' Union employee, Officer, Student Ambassador, Student Warden, Welcomer or run a club/society/activity you will need to be particularly aware of the Equality Act 2010 and issues around discrimination and prejudice.
Those aiming to work in the public sector will also need to be particularly aware of the benefits of diversity and promoting equality.
The National Union of Students (NUS) is very active in promoting diversity, especially their Liberation Forums. Our Students' Union here at Staffordshire is involved in a programme of events and campaigns aimed at increasing awareness of equality and diversity issues. Contact the Students' Union for information about clubs, societies and campaigns.
For help and advice on specific equality and diversity issues you can also contact the Students' Union Advice Centre or the Student Guidance Advisors.
Visit our web pages on age, disability, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and transgender for information, support and links to external organisations.
The Student Charter, along with other policies, can be found on our bullying and harassment page. It also gives details of who to contact if you have experienced or witnessed harassment.
If you have any specific equality, diversity or inclusion training needs please contact us.
