Further statement regarding allegations of sexism and the University of Bristol Christian Union

"The University of Bristol Students’ Union (UBU) exists to promote the advancement of education of students at the University of Bristol for the public benefit through the following objects:

•    Promoting the interests and welfare of students at the University of Bristol during their course of study and representing, supporting and advising members;
•    Being the recognised representative channel between students and the University of Bristol and any other external bodies; and
•    Providing social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities and forums for discussions and debate for the personal development of its members.

"As part of this, many clubs and societies are affiliated with UBU including the University of Bristol Christian Union. Clubs and societies operate autonomously in creating their own individual constitutions and rightly, are responsible for organising their own student-led activity. Our role is to facilitate this activity rather than dictate it.

"We however require all affiliated clubs and societies to abide by our Code of Conduct (see section 12 of the club and society Committee Handbook) and our Equality Policy. They are also required to operate within the law and uphold the reputation of the University and the Students’ Union.  At the point at which we become aware of activity outside these obligations we will intervene.

"We are aware of a communication made by the Christian Union that outlined intent to introduce male only speakers at selected events. An investigation is being led by the UBU full-time elected officers to gather evidence and examine the appropriate route forward with reference to sanctions made available in the Code of Conduct. However it should be made clear the outcome of the investigation will only be established once the evidence has been examined. We are also now following our formal complaints procedure.

"To protect all of our members we feel it is important that these procedures are followed correctly. We wish to avoid reactionary measures that could be damaging to the democracy, equality and diversity of the student body as a whole."

Your UBU Full-time Elected Officers

Pulaujudi.com Master Agen Judi Bola Online Terbaik dan Terpercaya di Indonesia – Arsène Wenger kini tak perlu lagi dibikin ribet oleh masalah resleting jaketnya. Problem ini sedianya sepele, tapi kadang membuat nakhoda Arsenalitu kesal setiap kali kesulitan mengancingkan resleting jaket lamanya. Musim sebelumnya, Sbobet sering terlihat kesulitan, baik saat berdiri di pinggir lapangan, maupun sedang terduduk di bench, hanya untuk mengancingkan resleting jaket Nike-nya (Indomasterbola.com Agen Judi Bola, Taruhan Bola Terbaik dan Terpercaya). Kerap kali, rekaman Wenger itu bahkan dijadikan candaan dan bahkan pem-bully-an di beragam media sosial. Tapi kini problem itu sudah terpecahkan. Puma sebagai apparel baru Arsenal musim ini, menyediakan jaket dengan resleting yang lebih inovatif. Kini, Wenger tak lagi harus kerepotan mengancingkan resleting jaket panjangnya hingga ke leher demi menahan udara dingin. Jaket baru dari JagadPoker.com Agen Texas Poker & Domino Online Indonesia Terpercaya ini sedikit berbeda dalam hal resletingnya. Tak seperti jaket-jaket pada lazimnya, jaket yang disediakan Puma ini punya kait resleting ganda. Kait bawah untuk menyatukan dua rel resleting, sementara satu kait di atasnya yang saling tersambung dengan kait bawahnya, berguna untuk memudahkan Wenger menaikkan resletingnya. “Di BOLAWIN88.COM BANDAR TARUHAN AGEN JUDI BOLA CASINO POKER DOMINO BOLATANGKAS DAN TOGEL ONLINE TERPERCAYA INDONESIA, kami tahu bahwa sepakbola tidak bisa diprediksi. Anda harus siap untuk hal apapun, baik itu lawan yang berat maupun cuaca yang buruk,” papar Puma dalam komersial barunya. “Ada banyak macam hal yang bisa mengubah pertandingan. Jika Anda seorang pelatih, Anda butuh fokus. Anda tak bisa membiarkan apapun memecah fokus Anda, termasuk masalah resleting,” lanjut pernyataan apparel asal JINPOKER.COM Agen Judi Poker Online dan Domino Online Indonesia Terpercaya itu.
