University of Sheffield

The University of Sheffield aim to create a corporate culture that is inclusive at all levels and in every system and process. Through their exceptional Equality and Diversity Strategy ‘Excellence Through Inclusion’ they work with, and listen to people from across the University and beyond, to hear them tell the positive stories about what they have achieved through inclusion, and what they should be doing in the future. Going forward, The Big Message project is the next phase of their Equality Objectives Project, involves developing an educational and business rationale for equality within the University. Their vision for diversity remains as clear and consistent as always: to become a motivated and diverse University, where staff and students demand the highest standards from each other and work together to maximise the benefits of difference. Incredible initiatives and standard of evidence highlighting their outstanding work surrounding inclusion meant that The University of Sheffield had to feature on the shortlist.
