Parliamentary Role Models
The Workplace Equality Networks, in liaison with the Diversity & Inclusion Team, have developed the Parliamentary Role Models Campaign 2015. The campaign recognises the importance of a working environment where people are valued for who they are and how they contribute to making Parliament a positive, inclusive workplace environment and institution.
Anyone at any level can be a role model and we are championing the importance of having visible, diverse role models at all levels of the organisation who people can be inspired by. It is also important for us to celebrate those who go out of their way to act as role models and to recognise the positive impact that they have made on individuals, the wider organisation, and beyond in encouraging people to engage with Parliament.
The Workplace Equality Networks
ParliABLE: in support of disabled people in Parliament. It is open to both those who consider themselves to have a disability and those who have an interest in supporting disabled people.
ParliGENDER: in support of gender equality. Our aim is to achieve gender equality across Parliament.
ParliREACH: in support of increasing awareness and appreciation of race, ethnicity and cultural heritage issues in Parliament.
ParliOUT: in support of LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersexual, and questioning) people in Parliament
People from all over Parliament discuss what they believe constitutes a Role Model, who they nominated and why.
