Public Sector Equality Duty Report

Public Sector Equality Report April 2019

GCU's Public Sector Equality Duty Report April 2019 describes our progress on mainstreaming equality and diversity and the delivery of our Equality Outcomes 2017-2021. 

The report outlines the legislative context and is then structured into three distinct sections to meet the needs of the Public Sector Equality Duty:

  • Firstly, the report describes how the general duty of the PSED (eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations) is mainstreamed into all of our functions.
  • Secondly, the report describes the progress being made to achieve our Equality Outcomes 2017-2021, during the period from April 2017 to April 2019.
  • Thirdly, the report presents information on protected characteristics of our staff, as well as board (University Court) gender diversity information and gender pay gap information.

Public Sector Equality Report April 2017

GCU's Public Sector Equality Duty Report April 2017 describes our progress on mainstreaming equality and diversity and ‌our Equality Outcomes 2013-2017. The overall picture is one of positive progress, with our Common Good mission clearly aligned with the requirements of the general duty - to eliminate discirmination, advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations. We can demonstrate strong staff and student engagement through our core activities of teaching and research as well as our support and operational activities. We can also demonstrate good progress across all of our Equality Outcomes which provides a firm basis for delivering our next set of outcomes for 2017-2021. 

The introduction to the report outlines the background and context. The report goes on to illustrate 'Equality at the heart of GCU' and how we have been 'Mainstreaming the general equality duty into our functions since 2015.' There is also a section on 'Equal pay', which is followed by a section describing 'Progress against our Equality Outcomes 2013-2017'. The final section, 'Data' provides a range of statistical informaion and key observations.
