Out@UCL is a staff social network and is a way for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) staff at UCL to get to know each other and take part in social events. The group was set up in July 2009 as some LGBT staff considered that, in an organisation as big as UCL, it was difficult to get to know people in other departments, especially other LGBT people.
The group networks through lunches and evening events. There is also an email group for members to communicate virtually and share information about LGBT-related events, publications and news stories. Click here to view the flyer for the group.
No, the LGBT+ equality group is a policy group which meets every couple of months to discuss how to implement equalities legislation in the workplace and promote LGBT equality. Click here for more information.
If you would like to become a member of the network then send an introductory email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Out@UCL supports LGBTQ+ charities including Opening Doors London (ODL), the leading organisation for older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans Londoners and the Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT), an organisation that supports young LGBT 16-25 year olds who are made homeless or living in a hostile environment.
Out to Lunch – termly lunches are hosted by the LGBT Equalities Champion Professor Anthony Smith. The next lunch date is TBC.
“As the LBGTQ champion on the Provost’s Senior Management Team, I am looking forward to welcoming new and existing members of staff to the first Out@UCL lunch of the new academic year and I am keen to hear your thoughts and ideas about how UCL can best support staff.
If you are not already a member of the informal Out@UCL network, are there things that could make this more useful to you? If you are a member, what else could the network and UCL do to support you better?” LGBT Equalities Champion Professor Anthony Smith
