Supporting trans Staff

“Trans colleagues and students are an important and integral part of our community. The perspectives and experiences of Trans people make our University a richer place to work and study. It’s been a privilege to have been able to mentor Trans members of the community and facilitate some of our students to attend Trans Pride over the last couple of years. I look forward to taking future opportunities to be an ally for Trans people at Bristol.

Robert Kerse, Chief Operating Officer

We are proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, the leading employers' programme for ensuring all lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.
