Allies supporting LGBT equality 

Open@TUoS 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.
We all have a responsibility for creating an environment that is free from prejudice, and one that is fully inclusive and supportive, enabling everybody to reach their potential. 

Open@TUoS works by inviting all members of staff regardless of sexuality and/or gender identity, who are committed to making our University a safe and supportive environment for our LGBT colleagues and students, to sign up to our mailing list and publicly support, and take action towards, LGBT equality.  

There are many ways you can do this: for example, you can attend LGBT events at the University to learn more; you can ask your department or faculty E&D committee if they have any actions related specifically to LGBT equality; and you can wear a Rainbow Lanyard or wrist band to visibly demonstrate that you are committed to creating a safe space for LGBT colleagues and students to talk to you.
