Equity, diversity and inclusion

 

With a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals 5: Gender Equality and Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities, we have published research across all of the Equality Act 2010 protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.

As an organisation we believe that people from all walks of life should be able to participate in society on a level playing field. Themes around social justice and equal opportunities run though all of our publishing lists and underpin our overall strategy.

Bristol University Press and Policy Press are signed up to the UN SDG Publishers Compact. In Equity, diversity and inclusion, we aim to address the following goals:
