Last year saw the publication of findings from a pathbreaking research study exploring the experiences of LGBTQ+ students and staff at Cambridge, as well as the launch of a new LGBTQ+ Alumni network. Come meet the leaders of these transformative initiatives to discuss how they are working to build more inclusive communities, overcome obstacles to change, and identify successful strategies to build on Cambridge’s rich legacy of LGBTQ+ activism.

A recording of this session is now available to watch on YouTube.
