main content

There are a number of short and longer term projects underway at the University related to Equality & Diversity themes. The links in this section contain further information on projects being undertaken by the Equality & Diversity team and other teams and departments across Strathclyde, including details of any opportunities to get involved.

Student Experience - LGBT Charter Mark
The Student Experience Directorate are working towards applying for the LGBT Youth Scotland Charter Mark to support LGBT+ inclusion in their work.

The LGBT Charter is a straightforward programme that enables you to proactively include LGBT+ people in every aspect of your work.

The LGBT Charter also helps safeguard the LGBT+ community’s human rights. These rights draw on international human rights and relevant UK and Scottish legislation and have been developed in consultation with LGBT+ people about what is most important to them.

The programme has been developed to support organisations to undertake training and review policies, practice and resources to make sure that they are not only meeting legislative needs but are as inclusive as they can be.

STEM Equals

STEM Equals is a four-year research and impact project focused on women and LGBT+ people in STEM disciplines in both academia and industry. The project is focused on working cultures, including better understanding and addressing systemic inequalities faced by women and LGBT+ staff. The project is funded by EPSRC under the Inclusion Matters initiative, with matched funding from the University of Strathclyde.
