Equality & Diversity Group

What we do

UEG strives to ensure inclusivity and equality of opportunities for all engaged digestive health professionals and staff, independent of age, gender identity, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, and ability. 

Assigned by the UEG Council, our responsibility is to assist, oversee, and announce the organisation's efforts in promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion, to address areas where inequalities may exist, and to ensure an environment free from discrimination. To achieve these goals, we have developed a comprehensive Equality and Diversity Plan that shows UEG’s commitment to creating an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment for all stakeholders.
