Other ED&I Initiatives
Book Loan - Menopause: The Change for the Better
We are delighted to have two copies of Deborah Garlick's (Henpicked) new book 'Menopause: The Change for the Better' available for loan to any member of staff.
Read reviews from staff who have already read the book and complete the form to borrow it yourself, on our Book Loan - Menopause: The Change for the Better webpage.
The University recognises that many of our employees will take on some form of caring responsibilities at some point in their lives. This guidance document outlines the support available to employees with caring responsibilities, to assist them in achieving a sufficient balance between their work and caring commitments.
Find more information in the Carer Guidelines .
The Carers Passport has been designed to provide a framework to discuss individual circumstances and facilitate a conversation with your line manager or HR Business Partner.
Find more information on the Carers Policy and Passport webpage.
Each academic year we produce a calendar featuring images that staff and students have submitted. The theme is "Diversity through the lens of a camera".
Download or request a copy of this years' calendar and submit your photos for next years' calendar on the Diversity Calendar webpage.
Employers for Carers
Warwick is a member of Carers UK Business Forum, therefore providing all staff with access to the Employers for Carers (EfC) platform. EfC provides resources for employers, line managers, and essential guides for working carers.

Excellence in Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Award
The Warwick Institutional Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team and the Gender Task Force are delighted to announce that a new award is being launched to acknowledge commitment to ED&I, and to share best practice.

The University is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and students to protect and promote the health and wellbeing, enabling everyone to be their absolute self during work and study. We aim to provide a fair and supportive working environment that is free from discrimination and prejudice for employees living with HIV. The University accepts that it has a role and responsibility to raise awareness, provide information and advice on HIV or AIDS.

We're working to create a kinder Warwick. #KindWarwick cards are being shared across the University, to encourage the spread of small acts of kindness across the campus.
Request a pack on the Kindness Cards webpage.
Let's Talk About Disability
The Disability Taskforce developed the 'Let’s Talk About Disability' campaign in 2020/21 to raise awareness of disability in a positive and inclusive way.
Read all the messages shared throughout the campaign on the Let's Talk About Disability webpage.
Milk Expression/Breastfeeding Rooms
Warwick has dedicated milk expressing rooms across campus to assist those returning from maternity leave and still breastfeeding.

Safe Overseas Travel Guidance for Staff with Protected Characteristics
This guide aims to make staff aware of potential risks they could encounter when travelling abroad on behalf of the University due to identifying with one or more protected characteristics.
Find more information, and download the guide, on the Safe Overseas Travel Guidance for Staff with Protected Characteristics webpage.
The Most Important Things People Want You To Know About Disability & Caring
As disability and caring can often be invisible issues we asked staff and students ‘What’s the most important thing you would want people to know about disability/caring?’ we received so many fantastic and thought-provoking comments we got them printed as a booklet so we can share them with the wider Warwick community.
See some of the quotes, and download or request a copy of the booklet on the The Most Important Things People Want You To Know About Disability & Caring webpage.
Working, Learning, Living
Inspired by the Royal Society's Parent Carer Scientist project, we’ve created our own booklet 'Working, Learning, Living' to showcase how staff and students all across Warwick combine their work and home commitments.
Download or request a copy of the booklet, and submit your story, on the Working, Learning, Living webpage.
