The University aims to provide support and understanding to those individuals who wish to take, or have taken, steps to change the gender identity they were assigned at birth. It also aims to create an inclusive culture, where all transgender people are treated with dignity and respect. Our commitments are outlined in the University’s Transgender Policy and associated guidance.

The University’s participation in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index provides us with a tool to assess the institution’s progress on LGBT+ equality and plan future actions. We were delighted to enter into the Top 100 Employers in 2019. To find our more visit our Stonewall webpage. 

The University has an active LGBT+ Staff Network, providing social and work-related networking opportunities, and growing networks of LGBT+ Role Models and Allies. To find out more visit our Networks webpage.
