We're proud of our diverse staff and student body and we're committed to creating a positive working and learning environment where all people are treated with dignity and respect.

Equality and diversity

As set out in our Strategic Plan 2017-22, one of our CORE values is Respect, constantly working towards shaping an inclusive environment in which diversity is valued.

The nine strands of equality

There are nine protected characteristics identified in the Equality Act 2010 and you can read about the programmes of work we have in place to ensure that we're encouraging equality across each of them:

Equality objectives and the Single Equality Scheme 

We have a responsibility to make sure our policies, practices, procedures and other functions are not discriminatory and have established equality objectives and a Single Equality Scheme, designed to help us achieve this.

Public Sector Equality Duty Disclosures

As part of the Public Sector Equality Duty for England all higher education institutions are obliged to openly publish certain equality and diversity information. St George's has gathered data in accordance with the suggested template from the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU).

Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group

Valuing and celebrating diversity is a strategic priority for St George’s, University of London. We aim to make St George’s a great place to work and study, and a place where everyone can thrive.

To achieve our aims, we need to foster a culture that recognises and values the diversity of background, mindset, skills, experience, knowledge and expertise. Diversity and inclusiveness within our community contributes to enhanced thinking, innovation and effective decision making, and ultimately will help us achieve our vision to improve health through inspiring education and focused research.

We have formed a Diversity and Inclusion Steering group to steer the future direction of our diversity and inclusion strategy and to develop and drive accountability for diversity and inclusion through respective departments, institutes and committees.
