Dear M Livingstone,
Thank you for your request for information from the University of Dundee.
Colleagues provide answers to your questions below and attached. Please
note that we have made a small redaction to the attached pdf to remove a
name and therefore protect the person's identity. Disclosure of third
party personal data would breach the data protection principles of the
Data Protection Act 2018. As such, please treat this email as notice per
S.16 and S.38 of FoI(S)A that we are unable to disclose the redacted
information to you because to do so could lead to the inadvertent
identification of individuals and the inappropriate release of personal
data.
1. Any application you made in 2019 or 2020 to be a “Stonewall Diversity
Champion” or to be included on Stonewall’s “Workplace Equality Index,”
including any attachments or appendices to those applications. Please
redact personal details if necessary.
Please see pdf attached titled: 'Stonewall-WEI-Written Feedback Report
University of Dundee_Redacted'
2. Any feedback you received in 2019 or 2020 from Stonewall in relation to
either application or programme.
Please see pdf attached titled: 'Stonewall-WEI-Written Feedback Report
University of Dundee_Redacted'
3. Any other communication you have received from Stonewall in 2019 or
2020 unless privileged or otherwise exempt from disclosure (but if you
claim privilege or exemption in relation to any material, please say in
broad terms what the material is and the basis on which you claim to be
entitled to withhold it).
Stonewall was involved with reviewing the University's Trans Inclusion
Policy when it was still in draft. However, the University is not able to
release this advice to you. Releasing the correspondence on this (b)
would, or would be likely to, inhibit substantially (i)the free and frank
provision of advice; or (ii)the free and frank exchange of views for the
purposes of deliberation; or (c)would otherwise prejudice substantially,
or be likely to prejudice substantially, the effective conduct of public
affairs. As such, the University claims the information is exempt from
disclosure per S.16, S.30 (b), S.30(c) of FoI(S)A in respect of that
information. You can read the finalised policy
here: [1]https://www.dundee.ac.uk/corporate-infor...
In addition to this, the University received the Stonewall Newsletter
through emails.
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).
No EIA undertaken on any of the applications.
5. Details of the total amount of money you paid to Stonewall (i) in 2019;
(ii) in 2020, whether or not as payment for goods or services.
2019 Membership fee (£2500 +vat)
2020 Membership fee (£2500 +vat)
6. Whether you intend to continue your membership of any Stonewall scheme
in the future, and if so which.
Will continue as Diversity Champions.

I trust you find this information helpful. 

 

Kind regards,
