We are pleased to introduce a campus- and affiliate-wide networking group for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) identified individuals and allies. The group began several years ago informally meeting after work and quickly became a regular social networking group for the support and encouragement of LGBTQA faculty, staff, students, fellows, and residents on the Northwestern Chicago campus. It currently draws participants from the medical school, law school, graduate school, affiliated hospitals and clinics. Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation, Northwestern University, Children's Memorial Hospital, and OUTLaw are pleased to offer formal support of the group's quarterly meetings, now called the Northwestern Chicago Out Network. It is our collective hope that providing a sponsorship for faculty, staff, and students who identify as LGBT or allies will ensure that our campus and affiliates have welcoming and inclusive environments.
We had three fabulous events this academic year sponsored by Lurie Children's Hospital, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Feinberg. Thank you to our wonderful partners for their support! We'll be back this fall with more networking and connection opportunities with your fellow members of the Northwestern Chicago campus community. Hope to meet you soon!
