Staff Forum and Network Feedback

We asked some of our Staff Forum / Network members for the their thoughts on what the Forums and Networks mean to them.

See some examples below to get a feel for the value and impact of our staff Forums and Networks:

“The LGBTQ+ staff forum is a collective of likeminded individuals where we can promote and campaign for equality, inclusion and awareness.”

“I would love to see more people accessing the Staff Disability Forum for support, to contribute and above all, to make a difference. Sharing good practice is as helpful as raising concerns. You can contact in confidence, or you can join meetings and know that your voice is heard and valued.”

“The BME network has provided me a safe space out with my own department where I feel heard and am able to talk about issues that affect me at work. As a consequence I have felt empowered to raise concerns and begin a journey towards influencing a real change in culture within the workplace.”

“I joined the LGBTQ+ forum as I think visibility is really important. Growing up I didn’t see gay people in everyday life. I want to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”
