LGBT+ Staff Community

Fostering safe conversations on sexualities and genders

The Community champions the positive development of LGBT+ related representation within the university. The University is a proud member of the Stonewall Diversity Champions Programme and in 2023 was ranked as the second highest university within the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.

The community invites staff from across the University of Greenwich who either identify as, or who are allies of, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and wider non heteronormative identities to join a forum that facilitates discussions and networking, while working collaboratively towards the visibility of LGBT+ identities, empowering individuals and celebrating our diversity.

Our Partnerships

We work with our partners across the UK and around the world to create opportunities for our students and staff to thrive, and for organisations to benefit from our people, research and leading-edge facilities.


Membership is open to all permanent and temporary staff working at the university who define themselves as belonging to the LGBT+ community. Other staff and allies who support the aims and objectives of the community are also welcome to become members. Members are given time off by the university to attend community meetings and events with contributions to the work of the community recognised by the university where possible.

LGBT+ Allies

The community is to establish a separate group for LGBT+ Allies in addition to welcoming allies as part of the community itself.
