Framework Development and Stakeholder Consultation Process

Disability Equality Framework

In September 2020 work began between the EIU and the Equality & Inclusion Delivery Group on the Disability Equality Framework. A comprehensive University-wide consultation process followed, including three iterations of the draft framework being shared with key stakeholders, and revisions were made following their input. We are very grateful to all those who contributed to the process including colleagues from the following areas:

E&I Coordinators; all staff networks including the Staff Mental Health and Disability Network and Chronic Pain and Fatigue staff network; Digital Practice Team; Disability Services; Disability Services Student Panel; Education Outreach Team; Educational Engagement; Facilities Directorate; Human Resources; Inclusive Teaching Team; IT Services; Leeds Doctoral College; Leeds University Union; Occupational Health service; Professional Services; School of Medicine Action Group on Equality and Inclusion; Sport & Physical Activity Office; Staff Counselling and Psychological Support service; Student Employability and Inclusion Group; the Centre for Disability Studies; the Communications Team; the Research and Innovation Board (RIB) Research Culture Working Group; Unison; Unite; University and College Union (UCU); Wellbeing, Safety and Health; Workfit Programme.

Throughout the development of this Disability Equality Framework and subsequent associated action plan we will continue to consult with key groups across the University.
