Overview

The Equality Act 2010 introduced new protection from discrimination for students during pregnancy and maternity, by extending the protection that exists for women in employment to higher education.

This workshop will provide an overview of institutions’ legal obligations in protecting students from discrimination on the grounds of pregnancy or maternity and will provide an oversight of Advance HE’s latest guidance in this area. The workshop will also draw from recent case studies of students’ experiences to explore current good practice and policies within UK institutions; how pregnancy or maternity impacts on student learning, well-being and sense of belonging; and how institutions and practitioners can improve their levels of support for these students.
