Equal rights and opportunities
The aim of the Department for Languages and Literatures is 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.
The Department has an appointed Equal Opportunities Representative that can be contacted in case of a problem. The Equal Opportunities Representative is bound by professional secrecy but has the responsibility to inform the Head of Department, who is in charge of the Department’s work with Equal rights and opportunities, about any problem that is reported.
