Equality and diversity
We consider equality and diversity in all our priorities. We ask institutions to be mindful of the Equality Act (2010), including the statutory requirement for Equality and Human Rights Impact Assessments (EHRIAs) of new and revised strategies and policies, which includes individual published outcome agreements.
Institutions are asked to demonstrate their commitment to upholding the legislative duties, for both staff and students in colleges and universities, by using information from their most recent Equality Outcomes and Mainstreaming reports in their outcome agreement.
We fund the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) to support institutions and SFC in embedding equality and delivering their Equality Outcomes.
