These three aims were put together by Spectrum’s founding committee in 2008. They are still relevant today:
Visibility and representation
To act as the officially recognised staff representative group for issues relating to LGBTQ+ equality in regard to School policy and formal consultations which the School may undertake, and to ensure LGBTQ+ visibility throughout the School.
Culture and education
To organise in-School cultural and educational activities that focus on LGBTQ+ issues, in particular in areas where the School has academic expertise, to promote greater awareness of debate on LGBTQ+ issues and the School's contribution to these areas. Events are open to all.
Social and networking
To provide a social support network for LGBTQ+ staff at the School, to encourage staff to feel open and confident about their identity, and to demonstrate the School's commitment to diversity and equality of opportunity in the workplace.
