Manchester Metropolitan University is the first university to achieve the Gold status in the Business Disability Forum’s (BDF) Disability Standard. The Disability Standard uses a thorough set of 10 criteria to evaluate performance across every aspect of an organisation and is the only tool to put such an emphasis on the whole organisation. The status recognises the dedication in delivering a positive culture toward equality and diversity and the strength of the university’s inclusive practice.
