About the network
The Network was set-up following a staff consultation in 2020 and was formally launched in February 2021.
We welcome staff and PhD researchers who identity as LGBT+ and those who are allies.
The Network is a vehicle to promote and enhance equality and inclusion across all genders and sexualities at the University.
In common with the University’s other Diversity Networks, the LGBT+ Network provides an opportunity to raise awareness and celebrate diversity through social events; to contribute to policy development and implementation; and to help ensure that the interests of those whom the Network represents, continues to form a part of the University’s wider equality, diversity and inclusion agenda.
As the Civic University, the Network also acknowledges its responsibility in providing leadership to challenge homophobic and transphobic attitudes and practices far beyond the University.
