Diversity Unit website

The URJC Diversity Unit aims to work intersectionally with the entire university community; all about diversity LGBTQIAQ+ (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans, intersex, asexual and other gender realities), socio-cultural and related.

For this, we develop several lines of action: attention, accompaniment and networks; training, awareness and dissemination; research, evaluation and diagnosis, commitments, protocols and university policies.

Among other issues, here you can modify the name and gender identity with which you appear at the University, through the “Protocol for the management and procedures related to gender identity"

Likewise, this unit works in coordination with entities focused on migration and refuge to facilitate accompaniment.

Come meet us! If you want to share something or simply visit us, know better what we do... we can stay and get to know each other. We are in Office 4009 of the Extension of the Rector's Office in Móstoles.

Linked SDGs

The 2030 Agenda includes the prohibition of discrimination based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity, culture and origin. For the 2030 Agenda, the effective promotion of the human rights of LGTBI people is essential; migrants and racialized people among others.

In this sense, the following SDGs address these issues:

  • SDG4, the issue of the right to education, plays a key role in promoting, guaranteeing, protecting and fulfilling respect for diversity.
  • SDG3, dedicated to guaranteeing a healthy life and promoting the well-being and health of LGTBI people, and people with different backgrounds and cultures.
  • SDG5, dedicated to gender equality, promoting policies that study the specificities of women and girls within any group.
  • SDG 8, refers to committing to the promotion of decent work for all people, protecting and promoting safe work environments free of LGTBIphobias, racism and xenophobia.
  • SDG 1 dedicated to ending poverty in all its forms and, for this, the commitment to appropriate social protection measures that guarantee the broadest coverage for people who often face stigmatization and discrimination are especially relevant.
  • SDG 10, dedicated to reducing inequalities in countries, by promoting the social inclusion of all people.
