“Workplace Equality Index.”

The only communication the university has had with Stonewall was from
November 2020 in relation to a request from a member of staff to ask if
the Stonewall LGBT Leadership programme would be delivered in the near
future.  They responded and said it may be delivered online in 2021 and
they would updated their website accordingly.  They also confirmed they
would be delivering a LGBT people of colour focused leadership development
programme in 2021. 

 

4. Full details of any equality impact assessment you carried out
connected with any of these applications (including any equality impact
assessment carried out prior to an earlier application of the same kind,
if no further assessment was done).
