ASPH Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME) Network re-launched in 2018 and the Lesbian Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT+) Network launched earlier this year. Since then we’ve celebrated a number of social events including Diwali, Eid, Black History Month and LGBT+ History Month and look forward to much more throughout 2019.
Other networks being launched shortly are Women Leaders Network and Disability Action Group.
ASPH is committed to being a fair, diverse and inclusive organisation that supports our vision to provide an outstanding experience and best outcomes for patients and the team. Staff networks will play a crucial role in contributing to this commitment by helping to transform the workplace culture, ensuring that we create an environment where staff can bring their whole self to work, patients have equal access to services, and everyone is treated with respect and dignity, irrespective of their background.
Networks will extend to representing the interests of patients as well as staff and play a crucial role in reaching out to different parts of the organisation that may be less likely to be engaged, to gain perspectives that may not be available otherwise. Our aim is to create valuable communication channels via these networks.
