Workplace Equality Networks

All four WEN logos

The House of Commons and House of Lords have established Workplace Equality Networks (WENs) to provide an opportunity for groups of people to discuss and consider issues relevant to their situation or of interest to them. In particular, WENs can be useful forums for groups protected by equality legislation.

"Our vision is a workplace that is accessible, inclusive and innovative, enabling Parliament to support democracy by being representative, fair and relevant."

WENs are open to all pass holders in the Commons, Lords, Parliamentary Digital Service, contractors employed by Parliament, MPs, Lords and their staff. Membership is not restricted to people who share a protected characteristic relating to these WENs but those involved are required to respect the aims of the Networks.
