The University aims to create an inclusive, supportive workplace and learning environment, free from discrimination, harassment and victimisation, where people are treated with dignity and respect regardless of their sexual or romantic orientation. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) has a suite of family-friendly policies which are inclusive of LGBT+ staff.

It is committed to tackling unlawful discrimination and harassment on the grounds of sexual orientation in line with the Equality Act 2010.

Guidance on good practice within higher education institutions in relation to sexual orientation is available through the Equality Challenge Unit.

The University is also a member of Stonewall, an organisation dedicated to achieving equality and justice for lesbians, gay men, bisexual and trans people.

An active LGBT+ Staff Network was established here in 2014, and in 2017 an LGBT+ Allies at NTU schemePDF icon was launched.

NTU Pride is an inclusive student society representing students with diverse gender and sexual orientation identities. They organise events, talks and nights out throughout the year.

Anyone who wishes to find out more about gender identity could start by taking a look at our Useful Links page under Gender Identity.

The Equality Challenge Unit (now part of the merger Advance HE) provides guidance on supporting LGB staff and students.

NTU has clear policies and procedures relating to equality issues. Discrimination, harassment and bullying behaviours will not be tolerated.

Where members of the NTU community feel they have experienced such behaviours they are encouraged to raise this with their line manager or HR in the first instance, or for students, with their personal tutor.

Should staff or students require independent guidance about their options, they may contact the confidential Dignity and Respect Contacts service.
