Stonewall top 100 employers
We note that the University is currently looking once again to be included in the list of 100 top employers put together by Stonewall, and is asking staff to complete a survey as part of this.
The University has been listed in the past but missed out in 2018 and 2019. We wonder if the decision to open a campus in Dubai might have played a part in the responses staff gave to the survey in the past couple of years.
As a reminder the decision to open a campus in Dubai came despite all campus unions and the rainbow network raising concerns about the risks it poses to LGBT+ staff and students and the University has repeatedly refused to consult with staff representatives about the this and other concerns relating to the campus.
If you choose to complete the survey (and it’s worth bearing in mind that Stonewall have yet to respond to any of our concerns about the University’s Dubai Campus) we’d encourage you to as honest as possible about the University’s commitment to equality in the light of this.
