As part of our programme marking LGBT History Month 2023 we have organised a Fishbowl discussion between LGBTQIA+ staff and Executive Board (EB) members. The aim of the event is to create an atmosphere for a facilitated conversation and reflection focusing on the lived experience and issues affecting queer staff at Bradford. We will have the chance to listen to staff lived experience to highlight and begin to address systemic barriers to inclusion in the workplace.
