Volunteering as an Anti-Bullying and Harassment Adviser
Would you like to help colleagues and students who are concerned about experiencing bullying and harassment in the workplace? Would you like to make a key contribution to the creation of a more inclusive LSE? How about volunteering to be an Anti-Bullying and Harassment Adviser (ABHA)?
The School is developing a new Anti-Bullying and Harassment Adviser scheme to improve the support for academic, research and professional service staff and for students and is seeking compassionate and motivated volunteer advisers.
Working to complement the existing provision of service, advisers will provide an important first line of confidential and impartial support for colleagues by clarifying the range of options available in cases of alleged bullying and harassment (including sexual harassment). As an independent and trusted source of advice, advisers will fulfil a key role in assisting colleagues and students who wish to know the range of potential next steps involved in addressing bullying and harassment. Volunteers would be asked to undertake a period of three years of service as advisers and will receive training in support of their role.
Who is invited to volunteer?
In order to offer advisers with a diversity of different ‘lived experiences’ to LSE staff, the School is keen to recruit volunteers from diverse backgrounds and who fulfil a variety of roles at LSE. This includes:
academic, professional service and research staff
staff from different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds
staff with disabilities
staff from LGBT+ backgrounds
staff from different age groups
staff from different genders
staff with different levels of seniority.
