Imperial 600 was established in 2006 to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff at the College. The group’s name reflects the estimation that around 10% of the UK’s population is LGBT – in 2006 this equalled 600 of Imperial's 6,000 staff.

Imperial 600 today remains an active staff network, providing a forum for members (LGBTQIA staff and postgraduate students, as well as straight allies) to come together in an inclusive, welcoming environment. 

We also offer support to enhance the experience and visibility of network members through:

  • Signposting relevant welfare services.
  • Intervention to support the improvement of internal policies and practices.
  • Representation, alongside other staff networks, on relevant College committees to promote equality with regards to LGBTQIA staff.
  • Providing a confidential point of contact for staff to raise issues or to discuss any concerns they may have in relation to LGBTQIA issues.
  • Organising events to raise awareness of the network.

"I believe passionately that our diversity is the key to Imperial’s success and that we all have the right to be judged purely on our merits. The College has made great progress in the past and I am sure has more to do in the future. I look forward to playing my part."
