About me

As Reporting and Communications Manager, I provide effective support for the governance of the EDI and Health & Wellbeing strategies.

I ensure that UWE meets its statutory and legal requirements for EDI and Health & Wellbeing, as well as overseeing compliance and assurance in these areas throughout the University. This includes UWE's Public Sector Equality Duty, Digital Accessibility Legislation, Charter Marks, EDI action plans, and Health & Wellbeing business cases.

I also oversee reports and external monitoring returns including UWE's Access and Participation Plan, and other expectations set by the Office for Students and Universities UK.

In addition, I lead on internal and external communication, ensuring impact and progress is communicated effectively through a variety of media, including the EDI team's internet and intranet pages, the inclusivity blog, social media, and via connections with existing networks.

Finally, I lead the EDI Operations team, ensuring clarity of accountability of all team members through performance management processes.
