Expressions of interest for LGBT+ role models

As the UK marks National Coming Out Day this Friday (11 October 2019), we're welcoming expressions of interest from LGBT+ colleagues who wish to be profiled as an LGBT+ role model.

We continue to strive to be a truly inclusive university and want to break down barriers and challenge misconceptions. Our HR Equality team are updating our LGBT+ role models web page and would like to hear from LGBT+ colleagues who wish to be profiled. To find out more, please email

Have your say on LGBT+ inclusion

In the summer, President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Koen Lamberts and Provost and Deputy Vice-President, Professor Gill Valentine invited all staff to complete the Stonewall Workplace Index. We all have a role to play in helping build an LGBT+ inclusive workplace, and one way to do this is to help us identify where we are doing well and the areas where we need to do more work. The survey takes less than five minutes to complete and is open to all staff. The information you provide is entirely anonymous. Use the University Organisation Code: 1699.
