We are proud to support the LGBT+ History Month which takes place annually in February. This year sees the 50th anniversary of the very first Pride March in the UK in 1972. The overall aim of the month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public. This year’s theme is Politics In Art: ‘The Arc Is Long’.
We believe at Six Town Housing that everyone has the right to be treated equally, with respect and to feel safe and secure in their home and neighbourhood. We also believe that everyone should be able to meet their full potential, regardless of who they are. We are proud members of Inclusive Employers and the Good Employment Charter which means we are part of a group to develop diverse, equal and truly inclusive working conditions across Greater Manchester.
Here are just a few examples:
• We compile an annual diversity calendar and organise awareness raising events which encourage staff and customers to attend and empower them to develop their knowledge.
• We highlight sources of support on equality, diversity and inclusion matters to all employees and customers
• We run mandatory training on equality, diversity and inclusion for all employees
