Recognising LGBT History Month
February is the official LGBT History Month in the United Kingdom. While the organisation behind the awareness campaign works tirelessly all year, it is February when they truly set out their agenda and show the UK and the rest of the world the importance of embracing equality and diversity. Every workplace needs to recognise the importance of accepting people from diverse backgrounds, to comply with discrimination law but also because it simply how the world works. No two people are the same and being accepting of those of different backgrounds, sexual orientation and experience is essential for a happy and healthy workforce. It probably seems like a non-issue in many workplaces but if discrimination does rear its ugly head, you need to be prepared.
