GMIT is committed to creating an environment where diversity is celebrated and everyone is treated fairly regardless of gender, age, race, disability, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, civil status, family status, or membership of the travelling community.

Embedding the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion across our Institute is one of the priorities set out in the GMIT Strategic Plan 2019-23. This will “ensure equality of opportunity and transparency” and aid “building a diverse community which thrives on excellence and, as a result, attracts talented people (staff, students and collaborators). They in turn, will further develop the Institute.”

The promotion of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is the responsibility of all members of the GMIT community and will contribute to creating a safe and welcoming environment where everyone can contribute and reach their full potential.

An Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Manager has been appointed for the Institute. This role will focus on the development, implementation and co-ordination of initiatives, policies, procedures and programs that support and embed equality, diversity and inclusion in the institute and acknowledge these as drivers of excellence.

Additonally an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Steering group has been established to oversee and provide guidance and direction for the achievement of equality initiatives such as membership of the Athena SWAN charter and support the work of embedding equality, diversity and inclusivity in the Institute.
