LGBT+ history month - support available

06 Feb 2023

Support available for our LGBT+ community at the University

Proud to support LGBT+ history month

This month, we celebrate LGBT+ history month, and our LGBT+ community.  

We aim to take a holistic approach that celebrates individuals and their many identities, and we have put in place a number of policies and guidance documents to support our LGBT+ community. 



Since 2013 the University has been a diversity champion for Stonewall and submits annually to the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index that measures how LGBT+ inclusive an organisation is.  

We are ranked as one of Stonewall's top 100 employers, currently 22nd out of 403 submissions, demonstrating our commitment to LGBT workplace inclusion.  Stonewall is an LGBTQ+ organisation which campaigns for equity and change.  

About LGBT+ history month

In the UK, LGBT+ history month takes place in February and provides an opportunity to celebrate accomplishments and share learning.
