Equal opportunities means that all staff, students and applicants must feel welcome and be given equal opportunities regardless of sex, sexual orientation, transgender identity or expression, disability, ethnic origin, religion, other belief or age.
The NJ Faculty's Equal Opportunities Committee focuses on mapping, influencing attitudes and education. The committee provides e.g. inspirational lectures and seminars, and convey information about conferences, training courses or changes in legislation relating to equal opportunities.
The committee includes four staff representatives from the faculty and two members appointed by Sluss.

Equal Opportunities fund
The NJ faculty dean, Torleif Härd, has instituted a fund.
The intention is that both NJ employees and students should be able to apply for money from this fund, to carry out equal opportunities activites. The money should be used to e.g. organize a course, seminar or practice at a department, union or course. You can submit your application at any time during the year.
The Equal Opportunities Committee regularly determines which applications are to be granted. Maximum amount per activity is 30,000 SEK.
Read all about the fund here.
