LSBU is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion at work. Currently LSBU have four thriving Staff Equality Networks. The Networks are a social and advocacy network for LSBU staff with an interest in equality and diversity issues.
All of the networks work in partnership with the University to:
- create a safe, inclusive and diverse place to work
- foster a culture of respect and equality for all staff, regardless of their protected group
- support every staff member to reach his or her full potential at work without fear of harassment, bullying or discrimination
We have an inclusive membership policy, welcoming all staff with an interest in equality issues - regardless of their protected group.
If you would like to become a member of any of the networks, please contact the networks' Chairs by emailing them.

GenderNet is the equality network for staff of all gender identities.
