St Mungo’s nominated for PinkNews Third Sector Equality Award
St Mungo’s has been nominated for this year’s PinkNews Third Sector Equality Award.
The awards recognise organisations which put a special effort into improving LGBT+ equality and the Third Sector Equality Award celebrates the efforts that organisations have undertaken to improve LGBT+ equality over the past year.
Steve Douglas CBE, Chief Executive, St Mungo’s said: “I am absolutely delighted that St Mungo’s has been nominated for the PinkNews’ Third Sector Equality Award.
“Equality and diversity are integral to St Mungo’s values and as an organisation, we work hard to ensure that LGBTQ+ awareness and inclusion are very much a large part of how we support our clients and staff.
“Our LGBTQ+ staff network are overwhelmingly committed in raising awareness of the community, improving practice with our clients and running events to mark key dates in the LGBTQ+ calendar and we look forward to continuing to ensure that everyone, no matter their sexuality or gender, always feel valued and accepted at work.”
The St Mungo’s LGBTQ+ Network inputs into diversity training, internal policy reviews and supports staff and clients; raises awareness of LGBTQ+ equality through LGBTQ+ History Month, nationwide Pride events and influences organisational development and service provision.
As well as celebrating the contributions to equality from the third sector with other nominations including Marie Curie, Victim Support, Wellcome Trust and Young Vic, the annual PinkNews Awards will also be celebrating the contributions of politicians, campaigners, businesses, public sector employers, broadcasters and journalists towards achieving LGBT+ equality at home and overseas.
The winners will be published on PinkNews’ website between 2 – 4 December.
