A note from our LGBTQ+ champion this Pride Month

It’s officially Pride Month, which means it’s time to honour the history, culture, and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community. While this is a time for celebration, it’s also a time for reflection and education. 

From discussions during our last wellbeing day and feedback from last year’s Pride Month survey, it’s clear how important these conversations are, especially for those without lived experience who might not otherwise understand the community’s challenges and nuances. As the ABC LGBTQ+ champion, I’m delighted to be the point of contact for any member of staff who needs support or guidance and remain committed to increasing awareness and finding effective ways to support our LGBTQ+ colleagues.

Happy Pride Month!
Hannah Palmer, ABC Inclusion Champion
