Publishing equality information: a guide for HEIs in England

Guide to meeting the publishing requirements of equality legislation

The specific duties of the public sector equality duty require higher education institutions (HEIs) in England to:

  • publish information to show they are complying with the equality duty
  • publish equality objectives.

A review of published equality information undertaken by the Equality and Human Rights Commission found a mixed picture in higher education, and recommended areas to be improved.

This guide outlines the legal requirements and provides key actions to improve HEI performance in meeting them.
