Go Back LGBT+ History Month webinar series | February 2021

LGBT+ History Month banner

LGBT History Month is an annual celebration of the LGBT+ community's rich history. Throughout February, NHS England and NHS Improvement North West are hosting a series of bitesize webinars to celebrate and share best practice across the region.

It is important to acknowledge that our colleagues in the system continue to face significant pressure to meet the challenge of Covid-19. However, it is vital that we continue to keep Equality, Diversity and Inclusion firmly on our agenda and improve our understanding about the disproportionate impact the virus has on some of our communities.

The team have listened to our LGBT+ staff networks within NHSE&I and out in our NW developing systems to identify a list of issues and topics which will be explored in a series of webinars, these include: LGBT+ History Month logo

  • identifying and managing LGBTQ+ talent
  • recruiting and retaining LGBTQ+ staff
  • learning from lived experience 
  • understanding the impact of coronavirus on this community
  • intersectionality and impact on health and wellbeing

Our colleagues from the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, recently awarded first place in the top 50 of the UK’s most inclusive employers, will also be hosting a session.

In delivering this webinar series we are dependent on our colleagues and peers being open, transparent and honest in their presentations – therefore we expect questions and feedback to be respectful and constructive.

In the North West we are committed to making a real difference to how it feels to work here.

We hope to see you there!
