Visibility is hugely important for people who identify as having protected characteristics, as through greater visibility we can create safer spaces for conversations and exploration, and we can share narratives with all our staff, students and applicants that we celebrate the whole of who they are. We are looking for amazing students who want to put themselves forward to become Role Models and help celebrate LGBTQ+ Month.
The aim of the programme is to promote visible representation and support for all students and staff across the University of Derby.
This will be done by having photographs of students and staff who identify as Role Models on the 28th January, between 12.00pm and 3.00pm. Selected Role Models will be visible across University sites, by being on screens, posters and within a booklet available to staff and students. The Role Models will be visible to show how actively and visibility inclusive the University environment is.
How to get involved
