The History Faculty CPWG will meet regularly from the end of MT2021 with a view to presenting a full report and recommendations to the History Faculty Board at the end of HT2022. The CPWG can make recommendations as to the following:
- Suggestions of practical measures to improve access to information about harassment and complaints procedures for Faculty members
- Suggestions of practical measures to embed a culture of no-tolerance of harassment and bullying in the History Faculty
- Recommendations for changes and improvements to University Policies and Procedures to put to the Humanities Division, to Senior University Bodies, and to the University project underway to review harassment policies and procedures.
A review of current policy and responses to harassment is currently underway at University level, led by the Head of the University’s Equality and Diversity Unit and the Head of Human Resources Policy.
The History Faculty will draw on the report of the CPWG to make recommendations to this review for the improvement of harassment policies and procedures. Representatives from the Faculty will also make representations to the relevant University committees and officers which have oversight over policy and/or the authority to change University-level policy and procedures (which may include Trade Union Representatives, Education Committee, Personnel Committee, Senior Tutors’ Committee, the Conference of Colleges, University Council, and Congregation).
