Staff Networks & Forums

Healthy University Logo

As part of Cardiff Metropolitan University's commitment to engage with our staff, students and the wider community to help create a more inclusive and diverse organisation, we welcome and support the development of staff and student networks. 

We recognise the importance of staff networks in bringing together people from all faculties and services that identify with an equality group, or an equality related issue. 

Staff networks are run by staff for staff and provide the opportunity for:

      • Social interaction
      • Peer support
      • Professional development
      • Assisting in raising awareness of equality


Staff networks can also contribute to the development of University policies and working practices. 

We recognise staff have multiple identities and our networks are open to all staff. Allies and staff with an interest in a specific area are encouraged to become members.

The University currently has four established staff networks, but we are pleased to support the development of further networks. 

If you would like to discuss setting up a different network group, please contact the Equality and Diversity Officer at
