UCL currently monitors the age, gender, ethnicity, and disability of all staff, job applicants, promotions and more annually.
To ensure that its workforce is representative and complies with its equality legal obligations, UCL currently monitors the age, disability, gender and ethnicity of all staff, job applicants, promotions, completion of appraisal, grievance, discipline and training take up.
The results are publish annually. UCL also monitors the sexual orientation and religious affiliation of job applicants and is in the process of collecting the same information for all current staff.
All staff are asked to complete equal opportunity classification forms. UCL also monitors admission and progress of students by age, disability, ethnicity and gender on an annual basis. The Data is presented to Faculty Teaching Committees which are asked to report back to the CEO on what action has been taken in relation to the data.
Monitoring enables us to see what is happening in practice, to measure progress in relation to equality so that the workforce profile reflects and is representative of the diversity of society at all levels of the organisation. It also enables us to identify any obstacles within organisational structures or procedures and modify these accordingly to promote equality of opportunity. Staff monitoring data is presented annually to the Human Resources Policy Committee (HRPC) and the Committee for Equal Opportunities (CEO).
