At Oxford Brookes University, we are committed to ensuring the very best staff experience where our whole community can flourish in a culture of respect and support, where we celebrate difference and thrive on each other’s success. As part of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion we have set up a LGBTQ+ Staff Forum.
The Forum organises social activities, hosts workshops, and provides a programme of events for LGBTQ+ History Month in February every year. The Forum welcomes all Brookes staff and postgraduate research students who identify as LGBTQ+ and allies. If you would like to join the Forum or have any questions or queries, please contact Jayne Stuart: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Members of staff who have experienced homophobic, biphobic or transphobic abuse, harassment or bullying can email firstname.lastname@example.org for confidential advice. The policy and procedure on harassment and bullying provides information about advice and support for staff and students.
To help promote the diversity of our community at Oxford Brookes, members of the Forum have provided personal experiences of working at the university. Read some of our LGBTQ+ staff profiles.
Within the Forum we have defined roles, providing points of contact and responsibility for specific areas. See below for the full list.
