Imperial 600 at Pride in London 2018

About Imperial 600

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.

Today Imperial has over 8,000 staff and over 19,000 students.

Imperial 600 remains as active as ever, welcoming LGBTQ+ staff, postgraduate students and their allies.

Strategy 2021–24

In November 2021, we launched a three-year strategy for the network.

How the network is run

Imperial 600 is run entirely by volunteers: read about who runs the network.

All network members are also regarded as a steering group for the network and Imperial 600 relies on their contribution to organising events, setting the agenda and raising issues of importance to the LGBT+ community.
