Equality and Diversity are of central importance to our working ethos. Performance is our purpose at the Royal Conservatoire and the nurturing and development of the individual creative potential inherent in each and every member of our community, staff and students alike, lies at the very heart of our efforts. In turn this means that the unique identity of every single individual who works or studies here, is valid and is valued and respected.
We welcome a diverse population of staff and students. Further, we are committed to promoting equality in all of our activities and we aim to provide a performing, learning, teaching, working and research environment free from unlawful discrimination against applicants, staff and students on the grounds of gender (actual or perceived), sexual orientation, disability, race, colour, nationality, national or ethnic origin, marital status, age and actual or perceived religious or similar belief.
The Conservatoire fosters a learning, teaching, research and working culture which not only supports diversity, inclusion and equity, but indeed requires those principles. We are thoroughly committed to the promotion of equal opportunities across all of our functions and practices including those of learning and teaching, employment, representation, decision making, and procurement and partnerships.
Our Equality and Diversity Forum consists of students and staff from across the institution. This forum is active, is honest and it has impact. It represents our genuine commitment to this key aspect of our community and its daily life.
Whoever you are, however you identify yourself, if you work or study with us, your identity is respected. We hope that in this part of our website you will find the information you need. If you do not, we welcome your feedback and comments.
