LBU Forums and Networks
We the Equality & Inclusion Fora, will ensure our University community is a place where everyone feels respected, valued and supported to achieve excellence. This will be a vibrant, ethical and sustainable working and learning environment that celebrates diversity and promotes inclusion. Utilising the University Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Framework as our guide, we will influence our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion provisions.
Having a ‘Great Community of People’ is key to all our future success and we want this to be reflective of our university life.
Our key Principles:
- To provide a safe, confidential and supportive community in which to discuss issues relating to protected characteristics, Equality Act 2010;
- To provide support, networking and sharing best practice across all equality strands; to assist in the monitoring and reporting on compliance with equality, diversity and inclusive legislation and good practice;
- To collaborate with honesty and confidentiality; provide active participation and challenge existing and progressive themes respectfully;
- To contribute to the development of policies directly relating to equality strands, and those which indirectly affect equality and inclusion issues through the equality impact assessment process.
