Healthcare provider Transform Hospital Group has created a team of LGBTQ+ ambassadors to undergo training with the LGBT Foundation.
The new ambassador group was set up as part of a wider pledge which aims to achieve LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace as well as the wider society, explains the company.
Five team members based at different locations have been selected by the organisation from numerous volunteers to act as ‘champions’, helping create future activities and initiatives. The team includes clinical services director Christine Mozzamdar, group HR manager Korina Cook, brand executive Jenna Robertson, reception and administration manager Karen Barlow, and surgeon assistant Joanne Williams.
According to Transform Hospital Group, before embarking on their new roles the team enrolled in the LGBT Foundation Champion programme as part of the LGBT Foundation’s Training Academy.
The LGBT Foundation Training Academy aims to increase people’s knowledge and confidence of LGBT inclusion at home, work and in the community.
“Along with my fellow volunteers, I’m thrilled to be undertaking what is such
an important piece of learning and development, and a role that will help
promote further inclusion both within and outside of our business. We can all
benefit from broadening our understanding of LGBTQ+ inclusion and increasing
our knowledge of the issues faced by the community.”
