Rainbow lanyards are a great way to show your support for equality, diversity and inclusion. They are freely available to every member of staff. If you want one, you can get it from the student support office located on the ground floor of the maths building!
If you have experienced any issue or need support, please reach out and get in contact with your Equality, Diversity and Inclusion representatives at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try our best to help you or direct you to the appropriate people that can offer support (all enquires will be kept confidential). The School of Physical Sciences webpage has some resources about mental health and wellbeing. On the other hand, the University has a Report & Support service in case you have experienced or witnessed bullying, harassment, sexual misconduct, or hate crimes. If you are unsure about what to do, please feel free to get in contact with us!
