National Assembly for Wales’ LGBT Employee Network Group ‘OUT-NAW’ recently launched their LGBT Allies programme.
Since its launch, staff from across the organisation including all board members, have joined the scheme showing their commitment to LGB equality. Allies are made visible throughout the organisation through attending internal events such as LGBT History Month, and are profiled in staff newsletters and named on the Assembly’s intranet site.
To ensure all staff are aware of LGB equality issues, the Assembly includes reference to LGB initiatives across all of its staff communications including staff magazines and news pages. A series of events are held throughout the year to mark occasions such as LGBT History month, where a series of ‘LGBT Heroes’ were profiled throughout the Assembly’s offices during February.
