Technological University of the Shannon (TUS) has officially established its LGBT+ & Allies Staff Network. The inaugural meeting of the network took place on Tuesday, June 14th. The network has been established by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion department at TUS to both foster equality, diversity and inclusion with and for the LGBTI+ community and raise awareness of LGBT+ issues.
Encouraging a welcoming LGBT+ community at work, the newly established network will provide opportunities for LGBT+ staff and their allies to come together and connect through events and initiatives.
