New names for our staff networks

flourish transparent-diversity

We believe in empowering our staff to have a voice, to enhance staff experience and enable colleagues to bring their whole selves to work. Our staff networks were launched back in 2014 to offer a forum where people can come together to share ideas, support one another, and raise awareness of the challenges they face.

The networks have recently been reviewed and we are pleased to share some of these changes.

New names

Network members wanted to update the networks and voted on the following name changes:

  • BAME Staff Network is now known as the Race Equalities Network
  • Disability Staff Network is now called the ENABLED Network (this stands for Enhancing Ability, Learning from Disability)
  • LGBT Staff Network is now identified as the Pride Network.

Our staff networks are a safe space for everyone to come together to support each other, make change happen and learn from one another. You do not need to identify as having a protected characteristic linked to the group, the networks are open to everyone (including allies) and those that simply want to learn more. You can join one, some or all the networks.

You can get more information on each of these networks with our new leaflets here:
