Stand Up Speak Out

Stand up speak out

Stand Up Speak Out is our campaign to encourage colleagues to take action against bullying, harassment and other forms of unacceptable behaviour they may experience or witness at work.

We want all of our staff to be active bystanders and to feel confident in challenging all forms of unacceptable behaviour in the workplace.

Stand Up Speak Out engages everybody in the cultural change that is required to build a diverse and inclusive University community where people from the broadest possible range of backgrounds can reach their full potential and thrive at work. We have a personal responsibility to treat each other in the way we would wish to be treated ourselves. Together we can create an environment where everybody can reach their full potential without fear of harassment, prejudice or discrimination.

Claire Buchanan, Chief People Officer

We will only be able to enjoy our work and achieve our individual and collective ambitions through team work, mutual respect and equity. It is important that staff feel able to speak out for themselves or others if they see or experience unacceptable behaviour.
