We’re changing our logo during June in support of Pride month 2022 and to show our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusivity.
We will be using the month to talk to staff to see what more we can do in future to support the LGBTQ+ community and to eliminate discrimination, homophobia and transphobia.
Sue Evans, our Chief Executive, said: “Once again this year we’re delighted to show our support for Pride month and stand shoulder to shoulder with members of the LGBTQ+ community.
“As an organisation we’re committed to anti-discrimination, equality, diversity and inclusion. We want LGBTQ+ people in our workforce, in the social care and early years and childcare sectors, as well as those who receive care and support, to see us as an ally in celebrating diversity and tackling discrimination wherever it appears.
“Changing our logo for the month is a symbolic show of solidarity, but we want our support to mean much more by helping raise awareness of LGBTQ+ internally and externally, and making sure that LGBTQ+ workers on our Register of Social Care Workers are not invisible.
“We also want to show potential LGBTQ+ job applicants that they can feel ‘safe’ and be themselves when working with us.”
Sue added: “I wish a happy Pride month to everyone working in the social care and early years and childcare sectors, and to people from the LGBTQ+ community receiving care and support in Wales.”
