Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This year, as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of women coming together through political activism to achieve the right to vote, we commemorate International Women’s Day by celebrating the outstanding women of Durham University making a difference. See what we are doing throughout the week to celebrate our Women.

Let us know about the Durham women who have made a difference to you, your college or department, the community or your academic discipline. You can nominate your female students and colleagues here! Or, for more information visit our International Women’s Day page.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Durham

Our aim is to create an open and inclusive environment where all members of our community can reach their full potential. We place Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at the heart of everything we do. EDI helps us to deliver our University Strategy by achieving a diverse staff and student community making full use of everyone’s skills and talents.

We are fully committed to eliminating discrimination, prejudice and harassment and actively promoting equality of opportunity for all of our staff and students. We seek to promote and maintain an inclusive, supportive and open work and study environment that respects the dignity of everyone.

We have five underpinning values of Equality and Diversity that inform everything we do:

  • Communication
  • Fairness
  • Mutual Respect
  • Opportunity
  • Transparency
