This month we celebrate Manchester Pride, and colleagues will have the opportunity to get involved at a number of events taking place across the University.  

This year's event takes place between Friday, 25 and Monday, 28 August. We will be marching under the banner “Inclusivity in HEI - Trans and non-binary rights are human rights” alongside Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Salford, The Royal Northern College of Music, The University of Law and University of Bolton.

Patrick Hackett, Registrar, Secretary and Chief Operating Officer and Executive LGBT+ champion said:  “We are committed to ensuring that all members of our University community are treated with fairness, dignity, respect and have a sense of belonging. We aim to reflect this not only in our structures, our priorities and our EDI strategy but also how we interact with each other.  Manchester Pride is a celebration of our LGBT+ community and I encourage you all to take part.”
