Disability Staff Equality Forum

A Forum for disabled staff to discuss and raise issues about the management of disability in the University.  The Forum meets up quarterly and reports to the University Equality and Diversity Committee.

Discussions from the Forum have already resulted in feedback being given to the University to help inform decisions both about specific disability related issues (e.g.  building design and adaptation) and to agreed processes and rules (e.g. car parking permits).

The forum meets three times a year on a Wednesday at 1.00 pm to 2.00 pm.

You are warmly invited to contribute towards this Forum.

Please see below the future dates for 2018/19:

27 February 2019

22 May 2019

If you are interested in taking part in the Disability Staff Equality Forum please contact the EDI Team, email: equalities@le.ac.uk
