Share your Friends of Enfys photos

We want all staff to make a visible effort to make Cardiff University an LGBT+ friendly workplace. Friends can display a laminated Friend card in a prominent place - this matters for your current LGBT+ staff and for those who work with you in the future.

Take a photo of you and your team with your 'Friend' sign and add it to our album.
