Equality and Diversity

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine embraces and values the diversity of its staff and student population and seeks to promote equality as an essential element in enhancing the School's contribution on the improvement of health worldwide.

The School has a range of policies including Supporting Disabled Staff, Dignity at Work and Study, and a range of data relating to staff composition and the School Equality Objectives.

The LSHTM Equality & Diversity Strategy has been reviewed by the Equality & Diversity Committee in May 2016.  It covers all staff, students and visitors to the School and aims to provide a working, learning and social environment which is supportive and inclusive.

The School holds the disability symbol and is also a Stonewall Diversity Champion.  The Director, Professor Baron Peter Piot, says "I am pleased and proud that the School has joined Stonewall's Diversity Champion programme.  I believe strongly that we should made the School the best workplace we can be for everyone, and Stonewall will help us achieve this."
