The official launch of the University's LGBT+ Staff Network, PRISM, took place on Tuesday 13 November in the Naughton Gallery and was attended by the Vice-Chancellor, senior leaders and staff from across the University.
"The PRISM launch was extremely well attended and it was wonderful to see staff and senior managers from right across the University show up to demonstrate their support and appreciation.
"As Co-Chair of PRISM, the support from senior management was particularly important. The support that senior leaders have shown, including through funding for the initiative and the VC's remarks and engagement at the launch event, demonstrates real commitment to ensuring that this is a safe environment for people to come to work as themselves and feel that they are fully supported by everyone in the Queen's community."
The Vice Chancellor said: "The launch of PRISM resonates with our Core Values and People and Culture Strategy, 'People First', so I was delighted to attend the event to reaffirm my full support for the work of this important staff network. PRISM demonstrates the positive and inclusive culture that we want to support at Queen's and reflects our commitment to equality, diversity and respect. I would like to take this opportunity to thank colleagues in the network for their commitment in being the driving force behind this important staff-led initiative and for creating significant positive change and meaningful impact in our workplace."
"The very best organisations create a space and dedicate resources to enable staff to come together and transform workplace culture. The PRISM Network is a great example of the University's commitment to this and to promoting equality, respect for diversity, and greater inclusion and respect for all staff."
