Publications and reporting
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
All of our current reports can be seen at Annual E&D reports and monitoring - Keele University
The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 place a legislative requirement on relevant public sector employers to collate and publish annually, a range of data on the amount and cost of facility time within their organisation. The regulations provide a framework for open and transparent monitoring and for demonstrating the effective use of taxpayer’s money.
Our Access and Participation Plan articulates our ongoing commitment to improving equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from higher education. Our latest Plan, approved by the Office for Students, incorporates contributions from colleagues across our university community.
In June 2017, Keele University as a member of Midlands Innovation, signed up to the Technician’s commitment. The Technicians Commitment is a University and Research Institution initiative led by sector bodies including the Science Council.
