The IUA Equality Network is a network of university equality personnel created under the auspices of the European Year of Equal Opportunities for All in 2007. The network is a collaborative effort by all seven universities to combat discrimination and foster a diverse environment where all members of the university community, both staff and students, can reach their full potential.

The report, available on this page in accessible formats, provides a summary of the main themes arising from the two seminars on the role of staff networks in supporting equality outcomes in the university sector, with a particular emphasis on the role that networks can play in promoting equality in the workplace. The seminars were funded by the Equality Authority.

The seminars had the aim to explore the types of networks that would be most beneficial to staff and to discuss the next steps that are needed in establishing a local or intervarsity network.

Any staff interested in exploring the possibility of introducing a network to support any aspect of equality or diversity on campus please contact the Equality Office by email Equality@dcu.ie or by phone on ext: 6300
