Sexual Orientation Equality Group (SOEG)
Each year the University participates in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index (WEI), a benchmarking tool which evaluates our initiatives and helps us better understand the challenges of creating an inclusive working environment for LGBT employees.
Following on from the University's engagement in these Sexual Orientation equality accreditations, the Sexual Orientation Equality Group meets termly to discuss a range of sexual orientation and gender identity-related issues affecting staff and students at our institution and monitor our Sexual Orientation Equality Action Plan.
The Group is chaired by Dr Michael Wykes, Director of Policy, Planning and Business Intelligence and brings together academic and professional services staff, students and colleagues from the Students' Guild (Exeter) and the Students' Union (Cornwall).
