Welcome to the Oxford Area Academic LGBT+ Staff Network

Welcome to the group!
This Network is intended for all lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT+) staff at Oxford Brookes University, University of Oxford (and its colleges), Oxford University Press and Ruskin College. This includes post-docs, research fellows, academic, academic-related, and non-academic staff. Staff at other universities and research institutes etc. in the region are also welcome to join. Similarly, while the group is primarily intended for staff, post-graduate students are welcome to join the list and attend events if they wish.

There is a flyer providing more information for LGBT+ staff available too.  More information on LGBT+ events across the city is available on dailyinfo.

The Network email mailing list provides an easy way for subscribers to share information. For example, you could post details of forthcoming meetings or social events, request information about a particular topic e.g. pensions, adoption leave, civil partnerships, etc… The number of messages is likely to be small so your inboxes won't be swamped. Only those subscribed to the list will be able to send or receive messages and your email address will not be divulged to other list members without your permission.  There is also a Facebook Page for those interested in more interaction with other like-minded souls.  

There is also a private group. Only members can see who is a member of the group and can see posts to the group. FB Events are set up using the group, and are also kept private. Because of how FB sets up private groups, it is only possible to be added to the group if you are a FB friend of someone who is already a member of the group. If you are not already FB friends with someone who can add you to the group, please message any member of the Oxford University Steering group (listed here: https://edu.admin.ox.ac.uk/lgbt-advisory-group). 

To join the mailing list, send a blank email to: ox-lgbt-acad-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk You will then receive a confirmation message (this may take a day or two). You may unsubscribe from the list at any time. Please don't send anything other than a blank message to this address as it is impossible for the list coordinators to read it!  If you want to ask anything please contact any of the coordinating group below.

* Please note we prefer you to register with an email address ending in ‘.ac.uk’ although you do have the option of using an anonymous address for future correspondence. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Network.
