LGBT Advisory Panel Recruitment

THIS PRESS RELEASE IS DIRECTLY FROM THE GOVERNMENT EQUALITIES WEBSITE

The Government Equalities Office has begun an open application process to select members for the Government’s LGBT Advisory Panel.

The Minister for Women and Equalities is appointing a LGBT Advisory Panel to advise the Government on its policies concerning LGBT+ people.

The Panel will act as a sounding board, providing practical advice to the Minister on policy decisions and publications, collecting and presenting evidence on the experiences of LGBT+ people and acting as a link between Government and civil society.

The panel will help the Government take forward the commitments set out in the 2018 LGBT Action Plan. Further detail can be found in the document entitled LBGT Advisory Panel - Terms of Reference.

We are seeking to appoint 9 members through an open competition. Successful applicants will be expected to spend up to 2 days a month on panel work and to attend quarterly meetings.

An additional 3 members will be directly appointed from Stonewall, the LGBT Foundation and the LGBT Consortium, so as to represent the breadth of the LGBT voluntary sector.
