Peer Support Group for colleagues returning from any form of parental leave

09 Jan 2018

A group for colleagues returning from shared parental leave, adoption leave, maternity and paternity leave to share their experiences

Peer Support Group

As part of the University commitment to Equality, Diversity and Wellbeing at Work, Staff Learning & Development and the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team are offering men and women returners from shared parental leave, maternity, paternity and adoption leave the opportunity to get together.

These informal sessions are un-facilitated and after an introduction by a member of the Staff Learning and Development Team, colleagues are left alone to:

  • Share experiences in a safe environment;
  • Hear about what has worked for others;
  • Offer peer support;
  • Discuss issues related to the balancing of work and caring responsibilities.

We provide light refreshments and you are welcome to bring your lunch.

There are still places available for the next session on Wednesday 24th January, to reserve a place:
