Equal Opportunities Policy

The National Postgraduate Committee aims to promote equality irrespective of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, nationality, political belief, religion or sexual orientation. We will not tolerate any form of unfair or unlawful discrimination.

We are committed to:

  • Promoting equal opportunities for all;
  • Preventing direct or indirect discrimination, intimidation and harassment;
  • Promoting a positive and respectful environment where members and guests are treated with respect and dignity.

If a member or guest of the Committee feels that he or she has been discriminated against by another member or guest at a meeting or event organised by the Committee then he or she is encouraged to inform either the Chairperson, the Equal Opportunities Officer or the General Secretary who will act on the matter.

Proposed by Chris Stuart, Equal Opportunities Officer 2002/03 and approved by the Ordinary General Meeting, 7/6/03 at the University of Essex
