PDN believes in equal opportunity for everyone, regardless of gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, age, national origin, disability, marital and/or parental status. We are committed to promoting a culture of respect, to recognising and challenging bias, and we have a policy of zero tolerance of any form of discrimination. PDN currently has a Bronze Athena Swan award. The PDN Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Taskforce is reviewing our practices in PDN to identify the many ways in which we can improve and build a truly inclusive environment. We are committed to listening to our colleagues, sharing experiences, and creating a safe environment for all staff and students. Please see our PDN ED&I webpage for more information. Below are also links to University-wide websites on equality and diversity.
