The HERE project is part of the University of Nottingham community which strives to provide an inclusive, respectful and considerate environment where everyone can contribute and be appreciated for who they are. We follow the University’s principles in working to ensure our visitors, partners, service users, other guests and members of the public are treated with respect, dignity, and have their rights protected while working with us or accessing our services and events.

Our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion builds on the Equality Act 2010, which provides a legal framework to protect people from discrimination, harassment and victimisation in the workplace and wider society on the grounds of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment (a personal sense of one’s own gender; this can correspond to or differ from the sex we are assigned at birth)
  • Marriage or civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race (includes race, colour, nationality (including citizenship), ethnic or national origins) • Religion or belief including philosophical belief and a lack of belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

In addition to being unjust, we believe discrimination on the grounds of these characteristics represents a lost opportunity to draw on rich and diverse perspectives and experiences, and potentially denies individuals a voice and an opportunity to reach their full potential. We believe it deprives the University, and by extension the HERE project, of access to the full expression of talent, value and contribution from its community members, which we know is critical to our success.

We believe that discrimination and disadvantage can take different forms and are not always overt or intended; nevertheless, the impact can be profound. The University is committed to:

  • Eliminating unlawful direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advancing equality of opportunity between people who share one or more protected characteristics and those who do not
  • Fostering good relations between people who share one or more protected characteristics and those who do not
