NASUWT and Equalities
Equality, tolerance and respect are integral to a strong, prosperous and civilised society.
The NASUWT actively opposes all forms of harassment, prejudice and unfair discrimination whether on the grounds of sex, gender identity, race, ethnic or national origin, religion, class, colour, caring responsibilities, marital status, sexuality, disability, age, or other status or personal characteristic.
The NASUWT is committed to challenging discrimination, inequality and intolerance and recognises that schools/colleges play an essential role in this work.
The NASUWT has a diverse membership of women, men, disabled, black and minority ethnic, old and young, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) teachers, and teachers with different religions/beliefs.
The Union is committed to promoting equality for all of its members in order to achieve equal and fair treatment at work. Equality is at the heart of everything that the Union does. An injustice to one is an injustice to all.
As part of the Union's ongoing inequalities work, the NASUWT has submitted evidence to the Women and Equalities Select Committee inquiry Unequal Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the Impact on People with Protected Characteristics.
