The University is setting up a new LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans) network for staff. The aim is to provide a support network for staff that can also raise any issues of concern, contribute to policy development and feed into consultations for our Equality Scheme.
If you would like to join such a network, please contact Kate Parsons, in confidence, on ext 4580 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Chris Dowd on ext 4276 or at email@example.com.
