Together we make a difference
Launched in 2014, our staff networks are pivotal to our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion agenda. They support staff, increase awareness and engagement and help to ensure we are as inclusive as possible. We recognise the value of our staff networks and promote them widely to encourage attendance. Any member of staff can join our staff networks to create an environment of support for all and we ask managers to enable time for attendance.
Each network group has two recognised Co-Chairs, supported by the EDI Team. We recognise that whilst being a Co-Chair is a voluntary role, there are specific responsibilities that take time to complete. Listed below are some of the role responsibilities along with our commitment as a Trust to support this essential function.
