New Staff – Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Welcome to the University of Bristol, a community where you belong.

Equality, diversity, and inclusion are fundamental to the University’s core values. Explore our Staff Inclusion pages to find out more about what the University is doing to build an inclusive institution that reflects our local community and society at large.

Introducing our EDI Senior Champions

LGBT+ staff are integral to our university community and the University is committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming workplace for all our lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and non-binary staff. We are proud to be a Stonewall Diversity Champion, enabling us to evaluate our workplace practices on LGBT+ inclusion, and are proud to sponsor Bristol Pride.

Robert Kerse, LGBT+ Senior Champion

Gender and race equality are both fundamental to our University's core values, ensuring our success as a high-performing and inclusive global civic institution where all staff and students feel empowered and respected. We are committed to making the effort to learn how we can continue to foster an inclusive community, and to take action to bring about real change.

Professor Judith Squires, Gender and Race Senior Champion

The University’s approach to disability inclusion is centred around the social model of disability. We focus on how colleagues are ‘disabled’ by barriers in the workplace, rather than by their impairment or difference. I encourage all members of our University community to ensure that everything that they do is inclusive and accessible by design.

John Iredale, Disability Senior Champion
