UCL is part of Stonewall's 'Diversity Champions' programme and has recently gained entry in Stonewall's Workplace Equality Index of '100 top employers for LGB people'.

UCL's LGBT Equality Group is open to all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff and those interested in promoting LGBT equality at UCL.

The group is an advisory body that will:

•  promote positive attitudes towards LGBT people and raise the profile of LGBT equality across the university;

•  promote recognition and awareness of discrimination facing LGBT staff and address any inequalities;

•  ensure issues of sexual orientation and gender identity are integrated into the operation of equalities and diversity at UCL;

•  consider the impact of legislation on UCL policies, procedures and practices as they relate to issues of sexual orientation and gender identity;

•  identify any employment issues, policies, or practices that adversely affect LGBT staff;

•  liaise with other universities with a view to sharing resources and/or ideas regarding issues of sexual orientation and gender identity;

•  report on progress to the Committee for Equal Opportunities and other relevant UCL committees and groups, as necessary;

•  act in an advisory body to UCL on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.

The group will meet at least once a term. Meetings will be held flexibly and more frequently as needed, in line with the group's activities.
