The 1st December marks World AIDS Day and this year’s was particularly poignant -it’s 30 years since the first World AIDS Day and while a great deal has been achieved, there are still 101,000 people living with HIV in the UK, and over 36 million people living with the virus globally.
To mark World Aids Day 2018, Out at Tesco held an event for colleagues with Stonewall and Terrence Higgins Trust to raise awareness of the virus. Patrick Mason, Legal Counsel and Member of Out at Tesco reflects on the event.
“Enabled at Tesco is the newest of our colleague networks and when I first heard about it, I knew I wanted to get involved. To me, it felt like something really unique, offering a fantastic opportunity to be part of, and further encourage open and honest conversations about disability and mental health. Everyone who is involved, from Joe the Network Chair to the members, like myself, are so passionate, determined and driven, and that collective energy is really empowering.
I strongly believe that my autism doesn’t define me, instead, I am the sum of my experiences. My journey with Tesco Bank is only just starting, but already, I feel I’ve been supported to achieve so much. I can’t wait to see where my career can go within Tesco Bank, and look forward to Enabled at Tesco continuing to grow and develop, making a real impact for our colleagues and customers along the way.”
