There are a number of different ways staff and students can get involved in Diversity and Equality through committees, forums, staff networks and groups.
Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Staff Network
The BAME Staff Network is open to all University staff who identify as Black, Asian or from an Ethnic Minority. The term Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic does not refer to skin colour; the emphasis is on the common experience of people of African, African-Caribbean, Asian and other non-UK origins.
Disabled Staff Network
The Disabled Staff Network is a forum for consultation and discussion of University policy affecting staff with regard to disability issues, raising awareness of disability issues, networking and providing support to disabled staff across the University. It is open to all University staff with an interest in disability issues.
Female Early Career Researcher Network
The FECRN is a forum for female researchers and academic staff who are early in their careers to meet, share and discuss issues that affect them in the workplace. Regular network meetings take place, providing an opportunity to hear from key speakers, find out about university projects and network with other members of staff.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans Staff and Postgraduate Student Network
The LGBT Staff and Postgraduate Student Network is open to all staff and postgraduate students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or trans. The network enables individuals to come together to share information and support. The network also runs a public engagement programme called Flagship.
Liverpool Women in Science and Engineering Society
Liverpool Women in Science and Engineering Society LivWiSE is a open network (staff, students, public etc) created to raise the profile and interaction between women in engineering and science in the University.
