Staff Training on LGBT+ Awareness- New Dates added



New dates have been added for two further LGBT+ Awareness Training sessions which will be delivered by The Rainbow Project.

The sessions are open to all staff and will take place on:

  • Tuesday 13 March 2018, 12-2pm in the Senate Room;
  • Thursday 12 April 2018, 12-2pm in the Senate Room;
  • Thursday 11 October 2018, 12-2pm 0G/010, School of Law


The Rainbow Project provides workshops to help build awareness of gender and sexual orientation among professionals who work with lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender people.

In Northern Ireland, we don’t often have the opportunity to discuss and learn about LGBT issues in a safe and supportive environment and these workshops are built to support participants in increasing their understanding of LGBT issues and confidence in supporting LGBT people.

This workshop will cover:

  • What is sexual orientation?
  • What is gender?
  • Growing up LGBT in Northern Ireland
  • Prejudice and Discrimination
  • Health Inequalities
  • Progress made and outstanding issues
  • Removing barriers for LGBT people

As we expect there will be a high level of demand, places will be reserved.

Register for these via Eventbrite at the following links:

13 March session-

12 April session- 

11 October session-  


Lunch will be provided for all who attend.
