Equality groups

Meeting of diverse people

At the University we have a number of groups to help shape our equality policy and contribute towards making the University a better and more equal place to work and study.


Some of the groups are formal, such as the Equality and Diversity Committee, and have representation from all the Faculties and Departments (nominated by their Dean or Director).  Others are less formal and are made up of volunteers who have an interest in that particular equality strand although staff are encouraged to consult with their line manager before volunteering.  All groups have representation from the Students' Union.


The groups tend to meet over lunch time to avoid clashes with teaching.  More information about each group can be found below:
