Diversity & Inclusion Calendar 2019

Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) network meeting

The Equality & Diversity Team would like to take this opportunity to refresh this year’s CIPD Diversity and Inclusion calendar, which highlights important dates, including holy days, special events, festivals and bank holidays.

The benefits of the calendar are that it:

  • Provides important daily information on dates, holidays and festivals, for managers and staff
  • Encourages personal development and self-learning
  • Supports the Trust’s diversity, cultural and equality initiatives
  • Promotes awareness of diversity throughout the Trust
  • Has a special focus for each month plus a quote on life and wellbeing.

Here are a few of the focuses highlighted for the next couple of months:

June: Celebrating LGBT Pride Month

The Trust has an LGBT+ Network and will be attending events across our region at:

If you have an interest in LGBT+ issues, or identify as LGBT+, then the network want to hear from you! Contact us via:

July: Celebrating International Women with Alopecia Month

The Trust has an All Women in EEAST Network (AWE). AWE aims to inspire all women in the Trust to be the best version of themselves that they can.

The group explores the issues women face at work, and what we can do to break down barriers to bring about real, tangible change. Membership is open to all women in EEAST; whilst we focus on issues impacting women at work, we recognise that the positive changes we make will benefit everyone in EEAST, so we also welcome the support of men who are keen to be involved as mentors or guest speakers.

 If you would like to be involved in AWE please email Lindsey at lindsey.stafford-scott@eastamb.nhs.uk.
