Stonewall Top 100 Employer 2019


The University has been named by Stonewall as a top 100 LGBT inclusive workplace for the sixth consecutive year. 

In the 2019 list we have been placed at number 23 - our highest ranking to date.

The Stonewall Workplace Equality Index is a benchmarking tool for employers to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace. Participating employers demonstrate their work in 10 areas of employment policy and practice, and staff also complete an anonymous survey about their experiences of diversity and inclusion at work.

Read the full story on the Staff pages and find out more about our work to progress LGBT+ inclusion via the Equality Diversity and Inclusion webpages.

Sheffield Leader: Impact


The University's new approach to leadership development, Sheffield Leader: Impact, has been announced by Professor Koen Lamberts and Professor Gill Valentine.

Sheffield Leader: Impact will equip those in priority leadership roles with the skills, behaviours, confidence and drive to deliver the University's ambition of achieving excellence.

There will be two programmes - the Personal Development Programme and Executive Team Development Programme.

Sheffield Leader: Impact follows on from Sheffield Leader, which ran from 2010 to 2018. The 1,000 plus colleagues who took part form our existing leadership community. This community will be built on so that leaders can continue to learn from and support each other
