Supporting our LGBTQ+ community
We have rolled out a new LGBTQ+ Allies staff training programme to enhance their ability to support our LGBTQ+ community

We’re a proudly diverse institution that celebrates that diversity at every opportunity—from sharing the stories and insights of our community, to marking campaigns such as Black History Month, LGBTQ+ History Month, Pride Month, Disability History Month, Carers Week, and International Women's Day, among others.

We encourage everyone in our community to get involved, either by attending or hosting an event. Staff will find a full calendar of Diversity events on our intranet, Herts Hub.

How to get involved

There are many ways staff and students can get involved in EDI activities across the university and throughout the year. If you’ve not yet joined Herts and have questions, please do contact the Equality Diversity and Inclusion Team.
