The University is looking for volunteers to become Dignity and Respect Advisors. These roles will play an important contribution to our long-term programme of activity to prevent and address bullying, all forms of harassment and sexual misconduct, as part of our commitment to ensuring a fully inclusive community.
Leeds Beckett University is a great place to study and work but when unacceptable behaviour occurs, it undermines the values of the institution, leading to a damaging student and colleague experience and impacting on the morale and wellbeing of members of our community.
Leeds Beckett University’s Dignity and Respect Network will be an appropriate and effective support for all individuals that have been affected by bullying, harassment, and sexual misconduct. Our Dignity and Respect Advisors will be unbiased, neutral colleagues who provide a confidential and informal service to listen and support individuals that may have been subject to, or be accused of bullying, harassment, or sexual misconduct.
This is a great opportunity to support students and colleagues, and colleagues to boost their interpersonal skills and further enrich their personal development. Colleagues selected to be an Advisor will be supported by the University EDI Team and be part of a network of Dignity and Respect Advisors who can provide peer support.
Applications are particularly welcomed from colleagues from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic communities, those who identify as male, members of the LGBT community and from colleagues in academic and research roles, as these characteristics have been underrepresented in the network previously.
Closing date for application is 12 November 2021.
