Zero Tolerance Statement
At LJMU, we promote an environment where everyone is treated equally and with dignity and respect. We operate a policy of zero tolerance towards any form of discrimination and work towards equality, human rights and social justice. We have built staff support networks which serve as social networks, contribute to policy development and raise awareness of equality activities. In addition we have Student Sabbatical Officers, which assist with embedding equality and diversity across the University. Our Student Welfare and Well-being department also work to ensure all students are treated with dignity and respect.
Whilst the University recognises the valuable contribution that can be made by staff and students in terms of quality of experience brought to learning, teaching, support services, research, consultancy, enterprise, widening participation, administration and management. The university expects these contributions to be made with due regard to equitable treatment regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity or other relevant distinction. The Equality Act 2010 which detailed protected characteristics takes effect from October 2010 and we will operate a zero-tolerance stance towards incidents involving equality and diversity issues.
