We’re proud of our diversity
Middlesex is an open and welcoming community. We value difference because it allows us to explore new perspectives and experiences, learning more than we ever could alone. We believe this richness of diversity enhances the experience of every MDX student.
We will provide you with a variety of new perspectives and experiences to explore.
We will encourage you to share your story, giving you the skills and confidence to do so.
We will acknowledge where barriers exist and act to ensure that equality, diversity, inclusion and justice are reflected within our ways of working.
We will listen, seeking to both understand and respect the views of others.
We expect you to be open to learning from and with others. Treating each other with respect and supporting each other’s success is at the core of how we work together.
We hope that you will challenge yourself to seek out new ideas, cultures and experiences.
We hope that you will ultimately become champions for diversity; both within our #TeamMDX community and in the wider world.
We have a number of different groups, networks, societies and initiatives that bring together our students around the topics of diversity, equality and inclusion.
These provide a space for students who face oppression and discrimination, whilst encouraging understanding, empathy and tolerance.
We encourage you to explore these groups:
We believe in the importance of equality across all protected characteristics.
That's why we have signed up to the Athena SWAN Charter to strengthen our gender equality.
In 2020/21, we will commence work on the Race Equality Charter as part of our continued commitment to advance representation, progression and success for all.
The Stonewall Workplace Equality Index is the leading cross-sector benchmarking tool for employers to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace.
Earlier this year, Stonewall awarded MDX 95 points in its 2020 Index, which is a an encouraging improvement from our 2019 score of 93.5.
We are a member of Advance HE's Race Equality Charter. Signing up to this charter demonstrates commitment to improving the representation, progression and success of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students within higher education.
We offer lots of support, activities and opportunities at MDX. If students have a specific support or wellbeing need, we can help identify the right service for them.
Middlesex is proud to have created a policy for supporting trans students in collaboration with our students’ union. You can find more information about what it means to be trans and how to access support.
