Equality, Diversity & Inclusion - Careers Support

Careers Network aims to place students at the heart of what we do. We are proud to work with and support more than 30,000 students who come from diverse backgrounds.

We recognise the intersection of advantages and disadvantages that students may face across factors such as race, ethnicity and sex while choosing careers and receiving support which should not define your employability chances.

We strive to improve your life at UoB and after by providing equal opportunities and fostering inclusivity while developing your employability skills, helping you gain relevant experiences, and make career choices whilst at university.

Why is diversity important in employment?

A diverse workforce is an important asset as it acknowledges the individual strength of each employee, the potential they bring in and fostering an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and confident to contribute to the goal of the organisation.

Our differences bring us together and organisations have been realising that this is the secret to a successful and thriving workplace and business.
