At Worcester Student’s Union, we are committed to equality of opportunity and to promoting a positive and inclusive culture, in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect. This applies to our roles as an employer, a representative and campaigning body, and as a service provider.
We recognise the value of difference and are committed to recognising, respecting and valuing different identities, perspectives, and backgrounds. We value the individual contribution of people and recognise the systemic barriers still faced by many in society. We commit to acknowledging their experiences and breaking down such barriers and to support all those who could be or are marginalised as a result of their disability, race, colour, religious belief, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity leave, age, marital status, civil partnership, or any other individual characteristic or intersectionality of different characteristics (this is not an exhaustive list).
We are committed to the elimination of all forms of discrimination and harassment within our organisation, both in relation to our members and guests and in the provision of services.

We have set up an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusivity working group within the SU to look at how we can encourage and promote equality and equity within the organisation and at the University. We are analysing our data to look at how students engage with us and to identify the any gaps in engagement that we need to address.
