New Microsoft Teams space for Spectrum members

We've set up a new Teams channel to provide a safe and inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ colleagues and allies during this difficult and unusual time. We hope to be able to share informative LGBTQ+ friendly resources with you, information about what the network is doing over the coming months, as well as fun and interesting things to do.

To join the Teams channel, please email
