Welcome to the Feb 2021 edition of the
Staff Pride Network newsletter
Welcome to our 10th newsletter and as LGBT+ History Month is upon us the Staff Pride Network team have put together another series of fascinating events on a range of topics, further details available on our EventBrite as well as listed below.
In other news, we have created a Deputy Co-Chair role to aid future transitions and provide learning opportunities. We are grateful to Ally Rep Danielle Marlow for taking on that challenge! You may have noticed the Philadelphia flag version of our logo above – February is Black History Month in the US. Also, we are still looking for volunteers for the Disability Rep and BAME Rep positions so if you might be interested, do get in touch.
We are delighted that schools and departments throughout the University have chosen to organise more events and have liaised with us to ensure communications are appropriate. Watch out for social media from UoE Sport & Exercise and an HCA event on 9th Feb https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/lgbt-history-month-dr-molly-merryman-queer-voices-from-the-pandemic-tickets-133064687061 .
We’ll share more events from fellow HE networks on our social media so if you’re not already following us, we’re @uoestaffpride on Twitter, Facebook and Insta.
The rest of the newsletter will highlight some of the fabulous virtual events we have been running with the opportunity to catch any you missed on our YouTube channel.
Happy LGBT+ History Month! We hope you can join us for one of our events.
