Equality and Diversity
A message from the Vice-Chancellor
I am pleased to welcome you to the Equality and Diversity webpages for the University of Warwick. The University is proud of its diverse community of staff, students and visitors, and is committed to maintaining its excellent record in teaching and research by ensuring there is equality of opportunity for all, fostered in an environment of mutual respect and dignity.
The promotion of equal opportunities concerns all of us. Please take time to read these pages and think how we, as individuals and as a community, can ensure that the University of Warwick continues to be a safe, welcoming and productive environment.

WBS wins award for gender equality work
In the first scheme of its kind the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) has awarded Warwick Business School a bronze for its progress in gender equality.
Based on the principles of the ECU’s highly successful Athena SWAN Charter for women in science, the gender equality charter mark aims to address chronic gender imbalance and underrepresentation in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
Bronze level is the first step in the process, showing a strong commitment to specific actions and building a culture that will improve the representation, progression and success of both staff and students.
The official launch of GEM will take place at the ECU conference in November.

Contribution to child-care costs associated with conference attendance
Small Awards (of up to £100) are available to academic staff and staff in appropriate support or administrative posts to help support the extra child-care costs associated with attendance at conferences. This fund has been established in recognition that conference attendance is important both for individuals and for the wider Warwick community, yet it invariably involves an extra burden of child-care for those with young children.
