Equality, diversity and inclusion are vital principles at Middlesex University. We value all our staff and students equally, and we firmly believe that the talents, skills, insights and experiences of our diverse community make us who we are.
We are a member of Advance HE's Race Equality Charter and we have signed up to the Race at Work Charter. We aspire to increasing diversity and inclusion at all levels in the University and a priority is to ensure that the University Executive are listening, learning and acting. Our Reverse Mentoring Framework is part of this process.
We are proud to have been ranked 12th out of 776 institutions for SDG5 Gender Equality in The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2021, which assess universities against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have also been awarded a Bronze Award by the Athena Swan Charter, which recognises that the University has a solid foundation for eliminating gender bias and developing an inclusive culture that values all staff.
At Middlesex we aim to encourage and support staff and students to fulfil their potential, irrespective of disability and ill health. We have gained a Disability Confident Leader (level 3) status and are a member of Business Disability Forum.
We have received a Gold Award from Stonewall – the world’s second-largest LGBTQ+ charity – for our commitment to inclusion of lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people in the workplace in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index 2023. We also ranked 58th (out of 268 institutions) in this Index, and came 8th out of the 30 higher education institutions that took part this year.
We are one of only three universities to be awarded the highest three-star Fairtrade University and College Award. The 2022 Award audit gave us the maximum score in three criteria themes including Campaigning and Influencing, and Innovative Interventions.
Middlesex has been ranked 101-200 out of 1,115 Institutions in The Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings 2021 for our work towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.
