The Steering Group are staff who volunteered their time to setup the staff network, following a survey that was carried out March 2013. The Steering Group are responsible for developing the network and organising events and activities in support of its aims, as well as acting as an informal buddying or mentoring scheme.

All university staff are welcome to contact them to discuss any LGBT-related matters, or to learn more about the Network's activities. Download a copy of the LGBT+ Staff Network's Terms of Reference.
