The University of Otago is dedicated to being an inclusive and accepting workplace that embraces, supports and celebrates the diversity of sexual and gender identities. At Otago we have a strong desire for every employee to feel valued.
LGBTTIQA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, takatāpui, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, asexual. Sexuality and gender identity vary greatly and not all people fit neatly into one of the commonly used terms. The "+" reflects this diversity. Other commonly used abbreviations are LGBT, LGBT+, LGBTQIA.
We are recognised as a Rainbow Tick certified employer, which means we meet a standard of inclusivity with respect to our staff’s sexual orientation and gender identity, and are committed to continuous improvement.
