February marks the UK's official lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) History Month. The overall aim of LGBT History Month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public.
New case study on Staff Role Models
As part of LGBT History Month 2018, you can read our case study
that looks at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust Staff Role Model Campaign. The case study features a role model called Lisa, who came out as a transgender woman in 2009 and has been living full time as a woman since 2014.
Share your experiences of LGBT+Networks
To celebrate LGBT History Month in February 2018, LGBT+ Networks
has launched a new online forum, which is part of a national research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and based at the University of York. The forum is a place for NHS staff to discuss their views and experiences of LGBT+ staff networks within their own organisations and find out how others are working. To get involved visit LGBT+Networks
and on Twitter @lgbt_networks
Our web pages on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality in the workplace gather information, tools, resources and best practice in one place to help organisations better understand and address the issues relating to sexual orientation in the workplace.
More information and resources will be added over the coming months, and we will continue to develop the pages, so that they stay as useful as possible for you.
Your feedback is always welcome, so if you want to share local or national good practice please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
