Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 south east LGBT Network LGBT Network Our Aims What is the Network? Why have a Network? Meeting s Online forum Social Events Learning and Developme nt "At Bletchley Park Turing's brilliance led to the successful decryption of German ENIGMA codes, helping win the war in the Atlantic and ultimately bring the war to an earlier close. Post-war, Turing worked on the earliest computers and artificial intelli-gence. But his homosexuality fell foul of cold-war paranoia, he lost his security clearance and indirectly the position and reco-gnition he deserved..." Thankfully times have changed and the LGBT Network has been making a positive difference to individuals and the organisation for over ten years. What started as an initial, fairly tentative meeting of half a dozen staff has grown into a professional, supported network that has been responsible for an incredible amount of organis-ational change throughout the past decade. Interested in becoming part of the Network? Email the LGBT shared mailbox or get in touch with any of the contacts listed overleaf. Each July we organise and host the Tri-Agency LGBT Conference, demonstrating how far all of the agencies have come with LGBT staff and within the wider LGBT community. We fly the Pride Flag over Main Building during Pride weekend, we have moved up into the top 25 employers in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index and received a Stonewall Diversity Star Performer award. We ran our first cross agency Leadership Programme for LGBT staff in 2014.
