Pride at the School of Informatics

Starting University can be a scary time for everyone, but even more so for people who are part of underrepresented groups, which is why, as Pride month comes to a close, the School of Informatics wants to share some resources and safe spaces available for the LGBT+ community.  

Firstly, we have Hoppers, a society for gender minorities in Informatics. They aim to provide an inclusive community where people are comfortable and can build both technical and networking skills to thrive in the tech environment through workshops and other events.  

The University also has a Staff Pride Network, an inclusive network that serves as a resource for the rich diversity of LGBT+ employees across the institution. Although this is focused on the staff LGBT+ community, students can also contact them for support.  

The full list of resources can be found below.
