Information on equality, diversity and inclusion training for staff at Northumbria University.

The University is committed to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion in all its activities, and to creating a working and study environment that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment and victimisation prohibited by the Equality Act 2010. 

A range of equality, diversity, and inclusion training opportunities are available to ensure Northumbria’s staff have the knowledge and tools to feel empowered in building a truly inclusive community. 

All University colleagues are required to complete Northumbria University’s online Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Training. The module introduces the staff to the key principles of equality, inclusion and diversity, and explains the potential impact of bias and the ways we can mitigate against it. It also covers the key legislation and its implications, our rights and responsibilities, and guidelines for ensuring that equality, diversity, and inclusion are embedded in our community.

Other more comprehensive EDI- related training courses for staff and students include ‘Active Bystander’, ‘Understanding Race Bias’, and ‘Unconscious Bias’ training. 

For more information on available training, please contact the EDI team.
