Your Union takes its role as a champion for equality very seriously. Everything that we do as a Union is bound by our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy and we are accredited as a Zero Tolerance Union actively challenging sexual harassment within our society.

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy comes with a framework and action plan which various members of the Union team are responsible for delivering. These actions are coordinated by a sub-group that is accountable to the Trustee Board of the organisation. You can read our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion strategy.

Below you'll find some information on the ways we work to champion E,D & I at Stirling. If you have any suggestions or feedback, we'd love to know. Please email us at or drop one of our Union Officers a message. 

Equalities Zone


We have regular Equalities Zone meetings. These meetings are open to all  BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethinic), LGBT+, women, and disabled students to attend. These meetings are a forum for the Union to gather feedback and help solve any issues that may be arising. The Equalities Zone is where the four equalities officers are elected (who represent the four equality groups – BAME, LGBT+, women, and disabled students).

You can see who our current equalities officers are here!
