EDI Forum Launch new [Places] 12:30 - 14:00 Cambridge University Library, Milstein Room

Our commitment to EDI is explicitly stated in our Strategic Plan under Theme 5 (‘Strong foundations for the future’). We say there that we will: ‘Work towards a more flexible, diverse and inclusive working environment and foster a research and learning culture that looks outward, compares and shares ideas and encourages innovation to achieve our aims.’

Over the past year, we have been doing quite a bit of thinking about how we ensure that our approach to EDI is, literally, inclusive. As a first step, we are launching an EDI Forum which, as a Non-School Institution Equality and Diversity Champion, Kirsty Allen will chair and Natalie Deighton will co-ordinate.

Leadership Network - Launch Session new [Places] 14:00 - 16:00 Cambridge University Library, Milstein Room

Network Launch Session

The new network will be launched at two sessions. The launch has been split between the two dates to accommodate the need for cover in Libraries and Departments. Therefore you only need to sign up for one launch session. However, if possible can you hold both slots in your diary in case we need to balance the numbers between the two dates.

21 November 14:00 – 16:00 – Milstein Room

26 November 09:30-11:30 – Milstein Room (please note this is in place of the scheduled SMG meeting)

The programme detail for the session will follow.

Network Goals:

1. To create structured opportunities to improve communication across our teams.

2. To help build a community of practice, sharing ideas and experience, round leadership and management for the University Libraries beyond the more formal structures of the Senior Management Group and Leadership Team.

3. To create a forum for dedicated training and development for us all, relevant to our roles as managers and leaders
