The University of Wolverhampton LGBT Staff Network is open to university staff of all identities. Founded in 2005, the LGBT Staff Network has been promoting an inclusive campus environment at Wolverhampton for over a decade. The role of the LGBT Staff Network has also expanded from organising social activities to steering institutional policy change and community engagement with wider LGBT communities and other universities. This is made possible by a milestone in 2014 when the University formalised the officer roles of the three Staff Networks as corporate positions. The core activities of the LGBT Staff Network include: 
 
-          Providing support, information and advice on LGBT issues or related queries to all staff
 
-          Delivering a confidential channel for reporting discrimination or harassment in relation to sexual orientation or gender identity
 
-          Reverse mentoring senior management on LGBT equality & diversity initiatives
 
-          Developing all staff through training sponsorship and delivering LGBT awareness workshops
 
-          Coordinating LGBT awareness events and campaigns, such as LGBT History Month, IDAHOT, Gay Prides, etc.
 
-          Liaising with other LGBT community groups, student societies and staff networks within the campus and beyond
 
-          Supporting the University’s submission to Stonewall Workplace Equality Index
