Equal treatment

Our organisation is continually evolving in order to ensure a good
working environment in which all employees and students, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion or other belief system, transgender identity or expression, any functional disability, sexual orientation or age, are given the best opportunities to develop. Increased diversity among both students and employees contributes to a higher level of quality in our activities.

University of Gothenburg must have real contact with the world around it – welcoming, easily accessible and ready for courteous cooperation with different parties, also outside the academic world. Our University must be an attractive, stimulating, creative and equal workplace, characterised by interesting encounters.

Active work to promote gender equality and equal treatment is critical for achieving the goals contained in the university’s long-term strategy Vision 2020:

"In 2020, the University of Gothenburg is characterised by a stimulating and dynamic work environment where respect for everybody’s equal value is completely natural."

The University of Gothenburg will strive actively to fulfil the requirements regarding equality of treatment. All employees and students will receive information about the legislation in force against discrimination. They will be offered competence enhancement and support to attend seminars and courses in these areas. The University will offer students and employees a good psychosocial work environment, which does not encourage any forms of discrimination, harassment or offensive conduct.
