Guild Statement - Fancy Dress

Tuesday 05-11-2013 - 11:57

The Guild of Students would like to address the recent issues surrounding fancy dress themes at Guild events.

The Guild has a zero tolerance policy against all forms of harassment to include racism, ageism, sexism, ableism, and homophobia and transphobia. It is believed that some fancy dress can be deemed offensive when considering the zero tolerance policy.

The Guild would like to reiterate that this policy has been put in place with students’ interests and safety at the heart of its decision.

We do however; understand that there has been some confusion with fancy dress themes and we are working on clearer guidelines to help inform students’ decisions, as well as a wider campaign to raise awareness on these issues.

In the meantime, students are advised to contact vpw@guild.bham.ac.uk with any related queries.
