Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The School of Mathematics and Statistics is committed to ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of its work. We celebrate diversity in our students and staff, and we are active in challenging injustice and promoting equitable treatment for those from marginalised or under-represented groups. We constantly review and take action on issues surrounding fair access and representation. This includes, but is not restricted to, issues surrounding gender, ethnicity, LGBT+, neurodiversity, disability and accessibility, and socioeconomic status. In everything we do, we strive to achieve the Open University's vision of a fair and just society where:

  • people are treated with dignity and respect
  • inequalities are challenged
  • we anticipate, and respond positively to, different needs and circumstances.
