Happy Asexual Awareness Week, everyone!
Coinciding with this event to raise awareness, we have published our report today on the equal opportunities monitoring in UK universities.
While there is a lot of work to be done to encourage universities to adopt our recommendations, it is also evident that there is plenty of good work being done by some universities to ensure that asexual spectrum individuals are welcome and valued members of staff.
Our ambition is to ensure that asexual individuals are free from discrimination and fear in any work they partake; currently, the law does not provide adequate protection for asexual people. While we seek to change the law, we are also encouraging organisations to develop their policies to ensure that all sexual orientations and gender identities are equally and adequately protected.
