Sheffield Hallam is proud to be a Stonewall Diversity Champion and we are one of only six universities to achieve 10 out of 10 in Stonewall's Gay by Degree Guide 2015 which rates gay friendly universities in the UK . We are currently working towards a ranking as a best practice employer in the UK in Stonewall's annual Workplace Equality Index
We are committed to providing a working environment for all our employees that is free of harassment, bullying and victimisation, and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. Our Dignity at Work Policy clearly outlines all behaviours outlawed under the Equality Act 2010 including examples of homophobic behaviours that will not be tolerated.
Our vision is to create and sustain a safe, inclusive culture where diversity is valued and celebrated. To echo Stonewall's vision, 'People perform better when they can be themselves.'
We have active LGBT staff and student networks and we offer advice, services and support for our LGBT students which we've listed in a frequently asked questions document
