Ambulance Service LGBT Network nominated for 'Excellence in Diversity' Award

One of the UKs most anticipated diversity awards celebrations has opened its nominations for the upcoming ceremony and West Midlands Ambulance Service’s LGBT Network is in the running for one of the trophies.

The 'Excellence in Diversity Awards' will illustrate some of the nation’s most inclusive organisations at the ceremony on the 15th November in Manchester, to honour those that lead in diversity, inclusion and fairness in all aspects of diversity.

The Trust’s 'Proud@WMAS LGBT Network' has been nominated in the ‘Outstanding Diversity Network’ category and, in order to be in with a chance of picking up the top prize, they need your support!

The judging panel will look for certain criteria for each award but there will also be a certain amount of merits based on the quantity and quality of supporting nominations received. Ash Deakins, the Trust’s LGBT Network Chairman said:

“We’re really proud to have been considered for this award as it shows we’re recognised nationally for the work that we do to promote and support the LGBT community.

"We attended Birmingham Pride recently and we were overwhelmed with the amount of people who came to say hello and thank us for the work we do.”
