GLEN is a Policy and Strategy focused NGO which aims to deliver ambitious and positive change for lesbian, gay, bisexual and Transgender people (LGBT) in Ireland, ensuring full equality, inclusion and protection from all forms of discrimination.
GLEN believes that high ambitions are necessary in order to achieve high quality outcomes and is committed to delivering ambitious change both for our communities and for Ireland. We are working to achieve a future in which LGBT people can make an even more creative and dynamic contribution to the social, economic and cultural development of Ireland.
GLEN is a non-governmental organisation, following a comprehensive and multifacted strategic plan entitled ‘Building Sustainable Change’. This agenda for change emerged from extensive discussion within the LGBT community on priorities and directions for change - as documented in The Equality Authority report 'Implementing Equality for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual People' and NESF Report No. 27 Equality Policies for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual People: Implementation Issues.
GLEN focuses on influencing policy and on working strategically and in partnership with mainstream organisations such as Government, regulatory authorities, trade unions and other social partners in order to achieve change. GLEN is not involved in direct service delivery.
The five year plan Building Sustainable Change, launched by An Taoiseach, Bertie Aherne T.D. in April 2006 is funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies. Aspects of GLEN’s work are HSE and the National Office for Suicide Prevention. GLEN’s work is guided by the following principles:
- Principled pragmatism
- Radical, yet feasible ambitions
- Commitment to Effectiveness
- Positive Approach
- Building Coalitions
- Preserving Political / Analytical Credibility
GLEN is working to make Ireland a place where all LGBT people can feel safe and confident about being open about their sexual orientation at home, in work and within the wider community; where LGBT people are not discriminated against in laws and in service provision; where relationships and love between LGBT people are seen as no different to relationships and love between heterosexual people.
