Become a diversity champion in your work place
In 2007 the RCN launched its diversity champions programme to recruit and develop leaders and role models for diversity and equality of opportunity, we now have over 500 registered diversity champions who help change attitudes and practice in their workplace. Go to Diversity Champions to find out more information and apply to be a diversity champion.
LGBT National Steering Group
This RCN membership group acts as an influencing and lobbying agent to prompt lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality within the RCN and the health care sector. The network has a formal business meeting at Congress each year and membership of the network enables additional access to the RCN's renowned political leadership programme.
Network members are active at a national policy level as well as locally. Confidentiality is also assured for members who are not out. The Network also celebrates LGBT History Month in February and aims to work in a strategic way within the RCN.
