Equality, Inclusion and Diversity

STFC recognises that excellence in science requires diversity and equality to promote innovation and creativity. STFC seeks to ensure that equality principles are applied to all funding activities, and considers that no one should be excluded or hindered in from a career in science because of their sex, ethnic background, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, pregnancy or maternity, marriage or civil partnership (protected characteristics as defined in the Equality Act 2010).
