We’re proud to have signed up to the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme. Our Disability & Neurodiversity Network have launched a campaign internally to raise awareness about the scheme. We aim educate our employees about hidden disabilities & encourage our colleagues to display a sunflower if they would like to disclose that they have a disability which may not be visible. We have a selection of sunflower ribbon, wristbands, badges and a Slack avatar for people to display.
For the past 5 years, Manchester Pride has been an event we've enjoyed being a part of, 2020 continues to teach us every day that there is still much more to do to remove stigma and discrimination in its many forms. As we haven't been able to march in person this year, it felt authentic to work alongside our friends within our LGBT+, BAME, Women?s and Neurodiversity & Disability Networks to explore what marching for peace meant to us all. We wish you all a peaceful Pride everybody! #lgbt+ #pride #manchesterpride #community #proud #love
