Nottingham Trent University has installed a 'Rainbow Crossing' at its Clifton Campus, demonstrating the institution's support for its LGBTQ+ students and staff, and and its commitment towards diversity and inclusion.

The NTU crossing acts in the same way as a traditional 'zebra crossing' and was installed by road safety markings company, Hitex International. It is inspired by the ‘Progress Pride’ flag which was designed by Daniel Quasar to include the colours representing the Transgender community as well as those originally included in the Pride flag. The crossing's black and brown stripes also aim to recognise the BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) members of the LGBT+ community that are often overlooked.

Following the city's Rainbow Road

The crossing was inspired by the installation of a rainbow road by Nottingham City Council on Broad Street in the city, and is the latest in a number of crossings across the city - with the University of Nottingham also putting similar crossings in place.

Diversity and inclusion are key to NTU

Diversity and inclusion are of high importance to NTU both as an employer and among its student body.

The university has a dedicated Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team and runs its own LGBT+ Staff Network coordinated by a steering group made up of committed members of staff.

The network looks for opportunities to raise the profile of LGBT+ equality through key events and activities, advises the university on relevant policies and practices, and provides strategic advice on issues affecting LGBT+ staff in the workplace.

There is also a Women's Network for staff, a Disabled Employee Network and a REACH (Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Heritage) network.
