Improving LGBT+ inclusion

Pride flag

We're working hard to create an inclusive University for our LGBT+ community.

Early next year we will be launching a new LGBT+ Strategy and Action Plan which sets out how we will improve the representation, progression, retention, experience and success of LGBT+ students and staff. 

A LGBT+ Strategy Review Group was established to review our work to progress LGBT+ inclusion and identify any provisions that need updating and any gaps. Their work, as well as feedback from our staff and student community, has helped develop the new strategy and action plan. 

Delivery of the Action Plan will be led by our LGBT+ Equality Delivery Group, which consists of senior stakeholders from across the University. Continuing on from the work of the LGBT+ Strategy Review Group, the Delivery Group will work collaboratively to oversee the delivery of actions, which will be published via a live action plan dashboard. 

To ensure that the lived experiences of our LGBT+ students and staff shapes our work, an LGBT+ Equality Advisory Group has been formed. Members will offer a sounding board, constructive challenge and advice on the implementation of the action plan. 

We look forward to sharing the new strategy and action plan with staff and students In February 2023 to coincide with LGBT+ History Month.
