Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Edinburgh Napier University aims to build a community where all of our members are empowered to fulfil their full potential and find their own unique place in the world.
We don’t just accept difference, we promote and celebrate it.
What do we mean by 'inclusion’?
Inclusion is one of our values.
Edinburgh Napier University is enriched by the diversity of perspectives, cultures and backgrounds brought by all within our global community. We are committed to a positive environment where diversity and inclusiveness is celebrated and everyone is treated fairly regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, disability, age, ethnic origin, religion or belief, marital or civil partnership status or whether pregnant or on maternity leave. We commit ourselves to providing a learning, working and social environment that is free from discrimination, prejudice, intimidation, stigmatisation and all forms of harassment and bullying.
We understand that it is because of our diversity that our community becomes smarter thinkers, better decision makers and braver innovators. We strive to ensure every member of our staff and student communities feel valued, supported and enabled to bring their whole selves to each and every endeavour without feeling a need to conceal elements of their identity to avoid unfair treatment.
Our vision is to build a community where all of our members are empowered to fulfil their full potential and find their own unique place in the world. We don’t just accept difference, we promote and celebrate it.
