I’m Helen Charlesworth, Senior Executive Officer in Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach, and a former Chair of the LGBT+ Advisory Group. Role models are important to me because I remember the few people that were openly LGBT when I first came out. It made a huge difference to see other people that were living happy and honest lives. It’s important to have openly LGBT people at the University so that colleagues can see this is a safe and welcoming environment. We know that people perform better at work when they feel happy and able to be themselves.
