The Staff LGBTQ+ Network sees colleagues come together to develop a community and safe space where information, experiences, ideas and concerns are shared. The network aims to meet every two months and is open for all colleagues to attend, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity, including allies. The key areas of focus for the network are visibility, education and developing a social community.
