About Equality Network

The Equality Network was founded back in 1997 as a national organisation working for LGBT rights and equality in Scotland and is a registered charity governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. Scottish Trans has been an Equality Network project since 2007.

We strive to be inclusive and open in our work, to challenge discrimination and to consult, involve and inform the individuals and the communities for which we work.

Partnership is a key part of our approach, and much of what we do involves working in partnership with diverse LGBTI people, other trans and LGBTI organisations, and with organisations working in the wider equality and human rights field.

Chief Executive Officer

Dr Rebecca Don Kennedy (she/her)
