Staff Networks

Our staff networks provide a safe space for colleagues with shared identities or circumstances to connect with others, share experiences and challenge organisational practices to create a more inclusive working environment.

Staff networks offer regular meetings and events for their members, and are also consulted on University policy and guidance, to ensure that the voices of members are heard and reflected in the decision-making process. Our staff networks therefore play a key role in making the University better and more inclusive.

Voice & Influence Group

All of our Staff Network chairs meet quarterly as the Voice & Influence Group.  The meetings are run by the EDI Team and provide opportunities for all network chairs to collaborate, share and be involved in wider University activities including policy consultation and Diversity & Inclusion events.
