An annual review of progress and delivery against institutional and unit equality objectives is coordinated by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team, on behalf of the Equality Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group (EDISG). The review is aligned to the University’s normal business planning cycle. Progress against the equality objectives and key performance indicators are reported to EDISG three times a year and to Council annually.
As a public authority, the OU is required to publish information about its employees and other persons affected by its policies.

Our equality scheme is available in a variety of formats as described on the Equality Scheme page of this website. Other formats can be provided on request.
