Southend Pride - come and be part of Pride with us!
12 July 2018
Pride is coming to Southend and we're getting involved.
Celebrations start pm 14 July and the week ends on 21 July
with the parage and a festival in Warrior Square Gardens.
Southend Hospital is going to have two stalls in Warrior Square,
one staffed by members of our LGBT group and one by the recruitment
team, and they will be showcasing how Southend supports and
champions LGBT staff within the NHS, while also promoting current
vacancies at the Trust.
Southend's LGBT Network Group promote equality and diversity,
along with the Trust's BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic),
Disability and Faith Network Groups.
The group is open and transparent and gives people a
voice, enabling discussions in a safe and welcoming environment,
raising awareness and advancing education on matters
affecting the LGBT community.
Julie Newton, Employee Relations Advisor and LGBT Group member
at Southend, said "I'm really pleased that Southend Hospital is
going to be part of Southend Pride this year, but I want to go
further and get staff from across all the three Trusts
"I'd love to have interested staff from Basildon and Broomfield
join us on the day, so we're throwing open the invitation - our
LGBT group would be thrilled to help represent the NHS for mid and
south Essex at Southend Pride and welcome our colleagues
If you're interested in getting involved and would like to come
