Diversity networks

Oxford Brookes University has a number of Staff Networks and forums to connect and support staff, based on shared identity or experience. These networks can assist in personal and professional development, organise events and activities, act as a sounding board for policy development and review, and provide a consultative forum for the university to gather views and feedback.

The Staff Networks are able to feed issues direct to the Equality Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Group, which is chaired by the Vice-Chancellor.

This established group is organised by lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) staff for LGBT staff at Oxford Brookes University, the University of Oxford (and its colleges) and the Oxford University Press. The group meets regularly on the first Thursday and third Sunday of every month and events are organised by different members of the group. They also have an active mailing list.

UNISON, the recognised trade union for all non-academic staff at Brookes, has groups for Women Members, Black Members, Disabled Members, LGBT Members, Young Members and Retired Members. The Oxford-wide LGBT Self-organised Group is newly formed in autumn 2016 involving members from several local UNISON branches across the public sector.
