Founded in 2010 and held each year on 31 March, TDoV is a time to celebrate trans people around the globe and the courage it takes to live openly and authentically, while also raising awareness around the discrimination trans people still face.
Sadly, we know that LGBT+ people still experience misunderstanding, ignorance, homophobia and discrimination.
CNWL prides itself on being open to everyone; no matter how you like to identify your sexuality or gender; be it gay, straight or bi; male, female or trans and all that's in between.
The Trust has a strong LGBT+ Staff Network and partners with charities such as Gendered Intelligence and Stonewall to run events and initiatives to improve outcome for Trans staff and patients. The Trust has a role models scheme to share the experiences of staff across the organisation.
The staff network organises LGBT+ awareness training to make sure everyone is able to be themselves in the workplace.
