HE: the equality challenges
The equality challenges facing the UK higher education sector.
ECU’s annual statistical reports present a snapshot of the age, disability, ethnicity and gender of the higher education (HE) workforce in the academic year 2015/16, as well as on the interplay of these identities (for example, female black professors and male disabled senior managers).
In addition, our reports present high-level findings on institutional collection and return rates of staff gender reassignment, religion and belief and sexual orientation data.
The full report provides national figures which can be used:
- to consider the diversity and inclusivity of the HE workforce as a whole
- to consider change and progress over time
- by individual institutions for benchmarking purposes
