UCL Engineering Science Faculty Office
Tel: 020 7679 0347, ext. 30347
I've been at UCL, in the Engineering Faculty Office, since 2011; prior to that I worked at HEFCE and at a variety of non-profit groups in New York. In both personal and professional contexts, I have considerable experience relating to LGBTQ, gender, immigration, and other equalities issues. I believe strongly that workplaces should be safe and free from harassment for all people and am glad to be part of UCL's efforts to this end.
UCL Finance and Business Affairs
Tel: 020 3108 3059 ext. 53059
I am the UCL Insurance Manager, part of Legal Services in Finance and Business Affairs. Having been in my current role for nearly 10 years I've been through a few restructures and changes to the working environment with colleagues.
Work is a big part of most people's lives and I feel it's important that the time we spend there, should on the whole be a positive experience, however other factors can sometimes contribute to the opposite. It's better if possible to deal with an issue in the early stage's. I have previous experience as an online mentor for an anti-bullying charity.

UCL School of Pharmacy
Tel: 020 7874 1270
I am the Manager of the Research Department of Practice and Policy. I have 20 years’ experience of working in NHS/University settings.
My role requires me to have a good understanding of staff relationships and the importance of building and maintaining a good rapport with colleagues in a variety of roles. I have supported a number of people over the years when they have been faced with difficult situations in the work place.
I hope that my role will help people understand that UCL will not tolerate inappropriate behaviour and that Dignity Advisors are available to informally assist them to resolve issues and prevent situations from escalating further.
UCL Institute of Neurology
Tel: 020 344 83853
I’m based at the Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, and I’ve been with UCL for 14 years now and have a wide ranging knowledge of the support offered by UCL. Over my employment with UCL I’ve experienced working at various levels and now lead a team looking at MRI in clinical and non-clinical trials. I have had two children whilst with UCL so have hands on experience of maternity related issues etc.
I strongly believe that everyone has the right to be comfortable and confident in their workplace and signed up as a Dignity at Work Advisor to help work towards that.
Royal Free Hospital Campus, Hampstead
Tel: 0207 433 2854 ext. 32894
I am a Research Associate working in the UCL Institute For Liver and Digestive Health (ILDH, Royal Free Hospital). I work in a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, technicians, engineers, postgraduate and undergraduate students.
At the ILDH I have become aware of the pressures exerted on academics (experiencing many myself), and how conflict can arise between colleagues. I became a Dignity At Work Advisor hoping to help others to resolve these issues. We should expect a work environment free from harassment or discrimination - intentional or otherwise. I would encourage anyone who wants to contact me do so by email in the first instance, and not to delay; the earlier we can help the better.
UCL Dept of Science & Technology Studies
Tel: 020 3108 1505
I’ve been at UCL since 2013 and currently work as the HR and Operations Administrator for the Department of Science and Technology. I come from an HR background and I believe this has given me the opportunity to be conscious of issues of unfairness in the workplace. My ideal workplace would be one free from bias and unfairness, this of course is a big ask, but with little steps and initiatives like this, we can all feel empowered to tackle these issues as soon as they arise. Please contact me via email in the first instance.
UCL School of Pharmacy
I work in the UCL School of Pharmacy as a postdoctoral research associate in the field of neuroscience. I have been working as a research scientist for over 10 years and have been in my current position for just over a year.
I believe that people should be treated fairly and with respect. In the workplace this is very important as work takes up a large portion of our lives. This means work related problems can be very stressful and have a major impact on people’s quality of life. I volunteered to the DWA role in order to help people resolve any work related problems.

In addition to advising, I supervise and mentor the new Dignity at Work Advisors whose photos and details also appear on this page.
Contact one of the advisors shown on this page in the first instance, no matter what the query. Many people delay seeking advice. They often finish the first meeting with a comment such as "I wish I had spoken to someone about this sooner".
