• Impacting on Equalities Policy Development

    The Centre brings together academic and management expertise from the University's Faculty of Business, School of Law and the Directorate of Human Resources. Its main activities include: interdisciplinary research linking legal and management perspectives to inform equality policies and practices in the workplace and around; events to facilitate debate and discussion on equality and diversity issues between academics, policy-makers, trade unions, senior managers and equality specialists; consultancy and knowledge exchange to assist organisations in developing and implementing equality programmes.

    The impact of the Centre's research helps practitioners and policy-makers to take an evidence-based approach to develop policies and practices on equality and diversity. The Centre aims to create a virtuous circle between research, knowledge exchange and impact.
