Annual E&D reports and monitoring

As part of our obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and public sector equality duty, we are committed to publishing annual equality information, in order to demonstrate transparency in our due regard to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between different groups
  • Foster good relations between different groups

Please note that our Gender Pay Gap report also contains Ethnicity and Disability Pay Gap reporting.

We are required by law to publish information relating to our workforce, our services and our gender pay gap. 

The information we currently publish applies to the following protected groups;

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Sex

In addition we publish some data on:

  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender reassignment

However, this data often involves small numbers of people (e.g. numbers of staff of some religions) and is often incomplete, as staff have either not completed this information or have actively chosen to withhold information. Hence, the conclusions that can be drawn from this data are often limited. 

We have not published data on pregnancy and maternity. However, maternity uptake and return rates can be seen in institutional Athena SWAN reports (as can data on paternity leave and shared parental leave).


We collect, analyse and publish information on the key equality aspects of our workforce profile including;

  • Overall workforce profile, including information on gender and ethnic grouping (BAME / White) by grade.
  • Retention profile
  • Job applicants, shortlists and those successfully recruited
  • Academic promotion

If you are a member of staff and would like to update your personal equality monitoring information please visit our Keele People employee self service information page


Student and Academic Services collate and analyse the following equality information relating to students;

  • Overall student profile
  • Degree attainment
  • Retention and progression

For data from academic year 2017-18 student equality data is presented as part of the Access and Participation Plan as submitted to the Office for Students

If you have any feedback on the information provided or require the information in an alternative format please contact Human Resources on extension (01782 7) 33339
