Staff Pride Network

Staff Pride Network

The Staff Pride Network is an inclusive network that serves as a resource for the rich diversity of LGBT+ employees across the institution, including PhD students who prefer to attend staff events. We strive to take an intersectional approach to providing a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all people who self identify as part of LGBT+ communities, whether or not they are 'out' in the wider world, and to make LGBT+ issues more visible within the University environment. Different organisations use different acronyms to refer to specific groups, and terminology is always evolving. Our definition of LGBT+ includes, among others, those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, gender fluid, intersex, non-binary, asexual, pansexual and polyamorous. It also includes all those individuals and communities whose sexuality or gender identity is a matter of shared personal, political and/or social experience, as well as those who are LGBT+ allies.

College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine celebrates LGBT STEM day

Staff and Students from the Vet School celebrating LGBT in STEM

Staff and students from across all four campuses of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine celebrated LGBT STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) day on 5 July 2019. Inspired by Pride in STEM, a charitable trust run by an independent group of LGBT+ scientists & engineers from around the world, staff and students were invited to upload an image of themselves or their team to social media and recognise the contribution of LGBT+ people at the University in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.  LGBT STEM day raises the visibility of LGBT+ people and contributes to the global push for increased diversity and inclusion in STEM. Many staff and students chose to be involved and contributed heartfelt messages of support for LGBT+ people and allies in STEM subjects.
