Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The Usher Institute seeks to foster an inclusive, fair, respectful culture and a welcoming environment in which all staff and students can flourish.
Everyone should be able to develop to their full potential and enjoy a safe and supportive workplace, regardless of any personal characteristic including but not limited to: sex, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, socio-economic background, trade union membership, family circumstances, and religious or philosophical belief.
The Usher Institute Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (E,D&I) Committee aims to promote and foster the mainstreaming of equality and diversity issues and awareness within the Institute – stimulating and building good practice in relation to ED&I across the full range of Usher activities.
