Senior Lecturer - Business School
Hi my name is Joanne Blake and I work in the Department of People, Management and Organisations in the Business School. I teach on a range of Management programmes including Human Resources and therefore have a good grounding in many aspects of managing individuals at work.
I have a strong sense of fairness and I always want to ensure that individuals are not treated less favourably than others and believe that work environment should be supportive of employees with diversity being embraced.
My name is Emma Eastwood and I work as a Student Systems User Support Officer with ASIS Support (Financial Services). I’ve been at the university since 2008, previously working in administration in Human & Health Sciences and Art, Design & Architecture.
I became a Dignity at Work advisor following my learning on my previous degrees, particularly that of Leadership and Management in Education. I now feel in a position to support people who may be experiencing difficult issues in the workplace. My objective is enabling people to work through and resolve any difficulties in order to feel safe and competent at work. We are here for a long time after all!
I’m approachable and friendly, and open-minded to any issues that may arise. My contact email is email@example.com. if you would like to arrange to meet to discuss any workplace related issues you may be facing.
Elaine Eastwood Profile
I have worked at the university since 1993 undertaking differing roles within the School of Computing and Mathematics then within the School of Computing and Engineering, following the merge between the two schools, and currently part time within both the School of Education and Professional Development as well as part of the admin team in Staff Development. I am also the branch contact for the Association of University Administrators (AUA) to increase awareness of the professional body and to disseminate information to both members and potential members.
Individuals have the right to fairness and to be treated empathetically with dignity and respect without suffering discrimination for their contribution to their working environment and each individual should be given the opportunity to develop and progress to their full capability.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss your particular working situation, I can provide a listening ear and will support you in any way I can.

Antony Osborne Profile
My name is Antony Osborne and I work as an Academic Librarian based in the Schwann Building where I have worked for 18 years. The basic tenet of working as a Librarian is to help people find the information they need. This principal extends out into the dignity at work role where I can provide a listening ear for a problem and signpost to where further help can be obtained. I have a particular interest in LBGTQ issues in the workplace. Outside work, I am a keen choral singer, husband and ailurophile (think cats!).
