I believe passionately that our diversity is the key to Imperial’s success and that we all have the right to be judged purely on our merits. The College has made great progress in the past and I am sure has more to do in the future. I look forward to playing my part."

Muir Sanderson

Chief Financial Officer, Executive Sponsor for Imperial 600

Imperial 600 was established in 2006 to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender staff. Postgraduates are welcome to join. Straight allies are also welcome. Together with other staff networks, Imperial 600's role is to help the College promote equal opportunities.

I600 has regular social events, including a drop-in drinks, on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, and a "bring your own lunch" informal event, once a term. See the Equality Events page for other forthcoming events. If you have an idea for an event or would like to organise one yourself, please do contact one of the steering committee members below.
