Equality, diversity & inclusion
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion are central tenets of King’s Vision 2029 which sets out the roadmap for King’s ambition to provide an exceptional student experience and to be an employer of choice. Integral to this is ensuring equality of opportunity and outcome, recognising, celebrating and improving our diversity and inclusion.
A responsible employer







 As a responsible employer we aim to provide and promote a positive working, learning, and social environment which is free from prejudice, discrimination and any forms of harassment, bullying or victimisation. 

At King's, our definition of diversity encompasses and goes beyond the characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010 to include everything that makes us unique, from our backgrounds and experiences to our personalities and ways of thinking. 

​​​​​​​King’s recognises the intersections between different elements of individuals’ identities and experiences, acknowledging that there may be multiple factors that affect individuals in our community sense of belonging.

Our commitment to inclusion means that King’s aims to create an environment where differences are not just respected, but also valued and celebrated. Everyone should be able to bring their whole self to King’s.

All King’s students, staff and affiliates are responsible for meeting these commitments to value diversity and create an inclusive environment. King's will support and equip all members of its community to do this, embedding inclusion throughout the university’s policies, procedures and practices.  

King’s has been a member of the Athena SWAN Gender Equality Charter since 2007 and gained its most recent Bronze institutional award in 2016. In addition, we hold a Bronze Race Equality Charter Mark Award. We are members of the Stonewall Diversity Champions program aiming to ensure inclusion for all LGBTQ+ people as well as the Business Disability Forum and Working Families. We also have a variety of staff networks that support our equality, diversity and inclusion strategy helping us foster good relations and providing development and support opportunities.​
​​​​​​​

To be truly inclusive we need to recognise the inequality and unfairness that exists in society and which can be reproduced in our systems and processes.

King’s challenges itself to continually improve and seeks to take proactive steps to correct imbalances. We have set ourselves targets of improving our gender balance at senior leadership levels as well as increasing the representation of BME people in our staff to better match our student body.
