- Leicester City launch LGBTQ+ Allies Employee Network Group
- Group will be a safe place for LCFC staff to learn, share experiences and provide support for LGBTQ+ people at work
- Network formed as part of the Club’s backing of the Football v Homophobia campaign
The group - formed as part of the Club’s support for this month’s Football v Homophobia campaign - will be a safe space for staff to learn, contribute, share experiences, and provide support to the LGBTQ+ community.
Research shows that LGBTQ+ network groups can help to transform the experiences of LGBTQ+ people at work. The Club want to provide an opportunity for that through peer-to- peer support, a place to help and contribute to awareness raising and create accountability in providing a safe and comfortable environment to work.
Network groups are also vital in creating LGBTQ+ inclusive workplaces. They allow employees to support their peers and find community at work, help to raise awareness of the importance of LGBTQ+ inclusion, and can be a critical friend to the organisation to push it to do the best it can to create an inclusive environment.
The group will aim to:
Support – provide a space for LGBTQ+ employees to support each other, express concerns they may have, and spend time around people who understand their experiences. This can radically improve their day-to-day experience at work by helping them feel less alone, access the support they need and grow in confidence.
Raise awareness – promote a better understanding of LGBTQ+ inclusion and make LGBTQ+ experiences more visible in the wider organisation. This can empower all employees to step up as allies and improve the workplace culture for everyone within the organisation.
Be a critical friend – review processes and policies, provide feedback and suggest ways these can be improved, while helping with initiatives and events and to ensure communication is more inclusive.
The network group is not just for LGBTQ+ people, it will be a space for all employees to learn, contribute, share experiences, and provide support.
