The Alliance Network

The Alliance Network is made up of the main representatives from LGBT Employer Networks in the Midlands. Their aim is to create a significant LGBT network, across professional service organisations in the Midlands.


Many UK and Global Employer Networks are high profile and successful

Often activity and sponsorship is much more visible in London

Many LGBT people who work in the Midlands don’t have access to the same support

Smaller organisations won’t have the resources or scale to develop networks

Work alongside Midland LGBT Employer Network but provide more specific advice and support to professional service organisations

Help drive the business case for inclusion in Midlands

Support individuals to be themselves at work and reach their full potential
