Jin-Soo Huh '09 Addresses the Duke LGBTQ NetworkDec 9, 2016
Dear Duke LGBTQ Network, As your new president, I am excited to build off of the great work of past president Fred Steckler. I want to extend my thanks to Fred for his work and my gratitude for his continued role on the board. We've been busy this fall. Here are some of the highlights: The LGBTQ Network board had a productive on campus meeting in early November, meeting with staff members of the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity (CSGD) and leaders of student LGBTQ groups. We left the meeting with an action plan to strengthen regional programming, to increase membership and diversity, and to engage our members with a signature event in 2017. The excitement of the weekend stood in stark contrast to the results of the U.S. presidential election. I am thankful that Duke has progressed as an institution that stands for diversity in a time when much of the the larger LGBTQ community feels threatened. It has been heartening to see Duke support the LGBTQ community recently with actions such as standing against HB2 and adding gender expression as a protected class to employment policies. A strong community is even more important, and the LGBTQ Network will continue to strengthen bonds between our alumni and Duke community members. Finally, I am excited for the work ahead in 2017, and I hope you'll join me. Here are a few ways you can get involved:
- Email us your ideas and concerns.
- Post on our Facebook group.
- Recruit fellow alumni to join us.
- Get involved in a committee.
