PRISM Officially Launches at QUB

Last night saw the official launch of PRISM, The LGBT+ Staff Network at Queen's.

The Vice-Chancellor was present at the Naughton Gallery on 13 November to officially launch PRISM, the LGBT+ Staff Network. 

The purpose of the network is to promote the University as a welcoming place to work for members of the LGBT+ community and specifically to-

  • provide a forum for networking and a means of peer support between LGBT+ staff

  • offer the opportunity for colleagues from all areas of the University to inform and collaborate on LGBT+ action

  • provide information, confidential support and advice on sexual orientation or gender identity issues in response to queries from all colleagues across the University

  • create and run a small social programme to encourage participation.

The event was held in the Naughton Gallery on Tuesday 13 November 2018 at 5.30pm. Light refreshments and pink gin were on offer as the Vice-Chancellor, Sally Bridge (Co-Chair), Richard Robinson (Co-Chair) and Conor Curran (Diversity & Inclusion) presented the Network officially to Queen's University Belfast. The video above was played throughout. 

The Naughton Gallery, located on the first floor of the Lanyon Building, was the perfect backdrop to the evening.
