Warwick believes in providing a diverse and inclusive environment for all staff, students and visitors.
Senior Champion, Provost Christine Ennew and Co-Chair's of the LGBTUA+Taskforce outline our commitment to LGBTUA+ equality.
These pages provide key LGBTUA+ information for all staff and students.
We currently provide the following networks:
Warwick SU Pride - Warwick SU society for LGBTUA+ students, both undergraduate and postgraduate.
Warwick Pride, the society for LGBTUA+ students has a Postgraduate & Mature Students’ Officer who organises events specifically for postgraduates and mature students in the community. There is a postgraduate and mature students’ Facebook group for relevant discussions (whose privacy settings are such that only members can see the group and its membership) which can be accessed via this form.
Purchasing membership of Warwick Pride (£3 annually, exempt from the SU Societies Federation fee) entitles you to emails with upcoming event details, including those of the wider society.
Events include coffee catch-ups, meal socials, trips, discussions, and evenings out.
This taskforce is an advisory body which makes recommendations to the Equality and Diversity committee on LGBTUA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Undefined, Asexual and other related identities) matters. Please click the link above to find out further information.
Warwick submit annually to the Workplace Equality Index which is a benchmarking tool for employers to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace.
