The Alliance Network are excited to tell you that we are extending our LGBTQI+ network in the East Midlands region.

The Alliance Network East Midlands brings together a diverse range of local employers to:

  • Promote and share best practice
  • Support each other to be more inclusive
  • Reach out and connect to our communities
  • Promote the East Midlands as a destination for a diverse workforce

We were delighted to be joined by:

  • Rev Jide Macaulay, from House of Rainbow
  • Maryam Din, from Stonewall / QTIPOC Notts
  • Luke Williams, from BPP
  • Dr Ju Gosling, from Regard

Our panel focused on the key theme of intersectionality, and the breadth of experience of a diverse LGBTQI+ community.

Our steering group would also love to hear from you if you would like to collaborate with us on this project. If would like to become a member of the network please click here.
