Wrexham Glyndŵr University aims to be a place in which everyone can work and learn free from harassment and bullying. Our team of Dignity at Work advisors are trained and ready to help members of staff who may be experiencing problems. Our advisors listen to concerns, provide confidential support and information relating to University policies and procedures, and signpost staff to available options.
Stonewall Diversity Champion
Wrexham Glyndŵr University is the first HE institution in North Wales to become a Stonewall Diversity Champion.
The Stonewall Diversity Champion Programme is the UK’s leading best-practice employer’s forum for LGBT equality, diversity and inclusion.
The programme enables the University to embed an inclusive and accepting culture within the organisation; establishing links with its lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community and encouraging collaborative working.
By navigating through a framework, the programme will provide the University with support and guidance and development opportunities for staff, ensuring that they are fully equipped to support students.
