Bullying and Harassment
Statement from Professor Anne Dell, Head of Department
Bullying and Harassment at work is unacceptable and will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Every member of our community is entitled to work, train and study in a caring, supportive, inclusive and safe environment where they do not have to worry about being bullied. If you are the victim of bullying or are aware of bullying please do not hesitate to make the Department aware - we will deal with cases of bullying effectively and promptly. All members of the Department are members of the Department of Life Sciences Culture Committee and the co-chairs can also be contacted if you would like to talk with them informally.
Have your Say and Online Reporting
The Faculty of Natural Sciences widely promotes the 'Have Your Say' campaign to help eliminate discrimination, harassment and bullying.
There is a hotline number run by Confidential Care (CiC) and an online anonymous reporting form should staff not wish to use the phone line.
To find out more about the Have Your Say campaign click here.
Staff and students can report bullying and harassment through the College Report + Support tool. This enables both anonymous disclosure and requests for contact as well as a number of staff and student support links.
Imperial College also has a network of trained Staff Supporters who can provide confidential support and advice to Imperial staff. They can act as signposters to other College services and a point of call when staff do not know who to reach out to.
