LGBTI+ Working Group
This working group is made up of WIN staff and students who are motivated by a shared goal of improving our centre for members of the LGBTI+ community. We aim to increase awareness of issues facing LGBTI+ professionals in academia, improve support from allies, and promote visibility of role models.
If you are a member of WIN, find resources and information developed by the group on the WIN Intranet.
What the group has achieved to date
- We developed our strategic vision. This informs our ongoing activities in 2019-20 and beyond.
- Together with Wellcome, we re-designed the WIN logo to celebrate LGBT Pride Month. This idea was adopted by other Wellcome Centres.
- We have hosted a number of leaders from the LGBTI+ STEM community to speak at the WIN throughout the year, including: Dr. Clara Barker (Uni. of Oxford) & Dr. Lilly Hunt (EDIS/Wellcome/Francis Crick Inst.)
