Hello all! My name is Cathy and I am your new merchandise co-ordinator.
I started working at the University of Edinburgh in February 2019. At first, I was nervous about becoming a member of the Staff Pride Network, as I hadn’t had the opportunity to engage openly with other LGBT+ community networks in previous workplaces as a straight-passing bisexual. Thankfully, I was put at ease when I attended the network’s AGM in September 2019 and had the chance to meet so many welcoming and helpful members. I decided I wanted to take on a more active role within the Staff Pride Network by volunteering some of my time to help with the smooth running of things.
As your merchandise co-ordinator, I am a central point of contact for any Staff Pride Network members seeking to acquire some lovely SPN merch. This includes our classic rainbow lanyards, LGBT+ Ally rainbow lanyards, SPN posters, business cards and some environmentally-conscious recycled pens.
