Black History Month celebrated

01 November 2018

In October the Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) group and the Equality and Diversity team coordinated and hosted a Black History Month showcase in the Education Centre.

The showcase was supported by staff members from across the Trust who came along to listen to speakers including Mary Foulkes, Chief Director of Human Resources Director and enjoy food made by members of the BAME group.

Bianca Koroma, Chair of the Trust BAME group said: "It was a great day and I'd like to thank all who attended our event. If anyone is interested in attending a future BAME group meeting, our next one is on Monday 26 November in the Joyce Long Room. We welcome all who are interested in attending."

If you would like to join the BAME group or if you're interested in other diversity network groups at the Trust, please contact Louise Mciver, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion manager via louise.mciver@southend.nhs.co.uk
