Court 2020: Diversity Monitoring

Further to a question submitted to the December 2019 meeting of Court, the University confirmed that we would conduct diversity monitoring of Court members in 2020. By the end of 2020 we had only received responses from 27% of Court members so we extended the period for submissions until 3rd January 2021 and the response level is now 41%. The data collected is shown below.

Of the responses received:

Age:
25 and under  2.5%
26-35  23.1%
36-45  15.4%
46-55  10.4%
56-65  20.5%
66 and over  25.5%  
Preferred not to say    2.5%
Disability Status:
No known disability  79.5%
Known to have a disability    20.5%  
Ethnicity:
White  76.9%
Black  10.4%  
Asian  7.7%
Mixed Race  2.5%
Identified as Other    2.5%
Nationality:
UK nationality  94.9%  
Non-European Union nationality    5.1%
Gender:
Male  53.8%  
Female    46.2%

To improve the quality of the data we will continue to run the survey annually for the next two years. At the same time, we will also start to collect diversity data from incoming members on appointment.
