Allies supporting LGBT equality  

 is an initiative being led by the University of Sheffield LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) staff network, in partnership with HR, to empower all staff to help create an open, inclusive environment for LGBT colleagues and students at the University.
Open@TUoS is our way of bringing together, and working collaboratively with, LGBT supporters and allies, regardless of sexuality and/or gender identity, to progress LGBT equality.

As an Open@TUoS supporter, there are a number of ways you can show your commitment: for example, by wearing a rainbow lanyard, by challenging inappropriate language and behaviour, by attending LGBT related events, and by sharing your learning with others.  Supporters will be added to a mailing list, in order to receive updates and information about events.

The University is committed to developing an open and diverse culture of excellence, collaboration, and respect throughout our community. We believe that we can only achieve this through involving all staff and students to create a remarkable place to work, where individuals can be themselves and are supported to succeed.
