UEA is a welcoming, positive and inclusive university for prospective students.
We're proud to be a Stonewall Diversity Champion and take part in the annual Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, which specifically addresses the level of support provided for trans and non-binary colleagues.
We have a thriving Staff Pride network for those who identify as LGBT+, and a fast-growing staff network of LGBT+ allies (you can spot them by their rainbow lanyards) We’re currently expanding these networks' visibility with LGBT+ representative biographies and staff articles.
We’re also working to improve the experiences of our trans and non-binary colleagues. Our activity includes reviewing policies around transitioning in the workplace, and releasing new online training modules around understanding and respecting trans+ colleagues and students.
Some ways to get involved
