University Equality Monitoring for Staff

The University is improving their support and understanding of our community through equality monitoring.

Founded on the principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York is committed to improving the experience and opportunities for all staff. To achieve this we must understand the identities and characteristics of all our staff. By updating your records and completing any missing information you will be helping the University build a true and more accurate picture of the diversity of our staff. Your personal data will be used anonymously to help us identify trends and highlight any significant differences between groups.

They have extended the equality monitoring information on your MyView page by adding sexual orientation, gender identity, religion and belief, marital status and caring responsibilities, along with including more detailed disability and ethnicity categories.
