Information on the Out@UCL Network
Out @UCL has developed a network to give LGBTQ+ staff, students and visitors an inclusive environment.
What is Out @UCL?
Out@UCL is a staff social network and is a way for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ+) 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 LGBTQ+ staff considered that, in an organisation as big as UCL, it was difficult to get to know people in other departments, especially other LGBTQ+ people.
Who are the members of Out@UCL?
We have staff members from across UCL in our network; read more about some of them here: We Are Out@UCL
What does the network do?
The group networks through lunches and evening events. There is also an email group for members to communicate virtually and share information about LGBTQ+ related events, publications and news stories. For more information see the flyer for the group:
Is this the same as the LGBTQ+ Equality Advisory Group?
No, the LGBTQ+ Equality Advisory Group is a policy group which meets every couple of months to discuss how to implement equalities legislation in the workplace and promote LGBTQ+ equality. Visit the LGBTQ+ Equality Advisory Group page for more information.
