LGBT+ equality

We strive to provide a supportive environment that celebrates everyone for who they are.

People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or who identify anywhere on the spectrum defined by LGBT+ face particular challenges in the workplace. We are proud to work with Stonewall as Diversity Champions to ensure all staff and students feel accepted and safe at the ICR.

Our LGBT+ Network

The LGBT+ Network provides a space for staff and students to meet with colleagues and allies from across the ICR and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust

The Network meets every two months to share experiences and highlight issues that may affect LGBT+ staff, students and patients. The meetings also provide an opportunity to influence ICR strategies and policies and help to promote diversity within the ICR and The Royal Marsden.

Recent initiatives led by the network include the ICR's rainbow lanyards, which you will see staff wearing around both of our sites, and guides on how to be an ally to people in the LGBT+ community. The Network also contributed to the ICR's policy on supporting transgender and gender non-conforming staff and students.

The Network also organises regular seminars with guest speakers and social events to mark LGBT+ History Month, Pride Month and LGBT+ STEM day.
