Information for staff
The University benefits from a Staff Sexual Diversity and Equality Forum which was launched on 25 February 2008 by the Vice Chancellor. The Forum aims to inform and influence the University’s approach to equality by contributing experience, expertise and ideas, offering opportunities for peer networking, support and development, and aims to provide an important channel for the University to seek the views of its diverse staff community.
If you have any questions or would like to find out more, contact the Equality and Diversity Office.
