Disabled Staff Network

The University recognises the power of Staff Networks, these groups provide an opportunity for staff to connect, socialise, support one another, and discuss issues of relevance to their communities.

Staff Networks are run by and for the members, with administrative support from the ED&I team. We aim for each Staff Network to be led by a Chair, the key intention behind this role being to embed ownership of the Network within the membership and take a lead on the development of the Network.

The Co-Chairs of the Disabled Staff Network are Jenny Wheeler and Nivi Morales Salas, you can contact Jenny on J dot Wheeler dot 1 at warwick dot ac dot uk and Nivi on N dot Morales-Salas at warwick dot ac dot uk.



The purposes of the Network are:

  • To support positive change for staff with disabilities where we each work and more broadly across the University.
  • To feed back in to the Network and to the ED&I team after every meeting.
  • To be a central group where any developments across the University can be examined from the point of view of staff with disabilities (e.g. new legal requirements being phased in to make all webpages compliant with accessibility standards).
  • To promote the concept of inclusive design i.e. design that includes diversity and accessibility from the start and thus improves quality of life for everyone; adaptations can be useful for many people and encourage innovation.

The Disabled Staff Network is open to all staff members with an interest in making the University a more accessible place for all. It welcomes any member of staff with an interest in creating a more inclusive environment whether or not they have a disability themselves.
