Work of Equal Rights

The basis for the work for equal rights at the University of Skövde (University) is to promote equal rights and opportunity for all employees and students, regardless of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnic origin, religion or belief, impairment, sexual orientation, or age.

The work is based on democratic values and human rights. By using the talent, experience and resources of all people, we can lay the ground for a good atmosphere for work, studies and research. All areas at the University must be aware of, and implement, the view that similarities and diversity are an asset, and that a person's right to be different constitutes the basis for equal rights.

The aim is to create an atmosphere where diversity is encouraged and enriches the entire organisation. We have a "zero vision" regarding discrimination and harassment.
