LGBTea+ at Hallam
The LGBTea+ scheme at SHU aims to build a sense of community for LGBT+ staff members at Hallam and help connect us on an informal basis. It gives LGBT+ members of staff to have the opportunity to meet other members of the community who we wouldn’t necessarily meet through our day-to-day roles.
The university’s vision is to create and sustain a safe, inclusive culture where diversity is valued and celebrated. To echo Stonewall’s vision, ‘People perform better when they can be themselves.’ The opportunity to have an informal chat with other LGBT+ members of staff will help us achieve this.
It is also important that this LGBTea+ scheme has not been set-up as an alternative to the ‘Random Coffee at SHU’ scheme. We encourage all LGBT+ members of staff to sign up to both schemes as they both provide different networking/community building opportunities.
There’s some more information below, and if you’re interested in being paired up for a LGBTea+ then complete the form and we’ll get back to you soon.
How does it work?
Pairings are made every 2 months.
LGBTea+ at Hallam is a commitment of up to an hour every 2 months. We ask that all staff who sign up commit to the meeting to avoid disappointing the other member of staff you have been paired with. However we appreciate that circumstances change so if you wish to leave LGBTea+ at any point you can do so by emailing !LGBT@shu.ac.uk
