We are part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions Programme – a good practice employers’ forum on sexual orientation – and will work with Stonewall on a range of issues.
Workplace Equality Index
We have taken part in the Workplace Equality Index – a leading tool for employers to measure their efforts to tackle discrimination and create inclusive workplaces for lesbian, gay and bisexual employees.
Newcastle Hospitals is also featured in Stonewall’s Starting Out Guide, the UK’s first national directory of gay-friendly employers.
Supporting LGBT History Month
February is LGBT History Month in the UK.
The aim of LGBT History Month is to recognise and celebrate all the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people who have contributed to society and to history, and to highlight relevant and important events and issues in LGBT history.
Just as with Black History Month, Women’s History Month or other such heritage, LGBT History Month seeks to celebrate collective achievements and is a ‘festival’ of equality.
