LGBT Network

New University of Edinburgh Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Staff Network planned, to coincide with LGBT history month.

Some of you may be aware that February is LGBT history month, when there are opportunities to celebrate the lives and achievements of the LGBT community.

To coincide with LGBT History Month, the University wishes to commence plans to set up an LGBT network for our employees.

The project to create the network is being taken forward by Dave Rigby from our University HR Services Team: Dave is a member of our LGBT community and is very keen to hear from people who are interested in joining this network, and additionally from anyone who wants to take on a role in its creation.

Anyone interested should initially email Dave to register their interest by the end of February.

If you would like to discuss this with Dave before responding, he can be contacted on 0131 650 9673.

Please note that all responses will be treated as confidential and replies to emails will be sent by him individually.

We propose to hold an initial exploratory meeting at some point in March/April so that those interested can discuss and agree how the network would operate, the purposes of the network and any key roles we identify.

Further information about this will be sent individually to those who have expressed an interest nearer the time of the meeting.
