Training & Workshop Day - Thursday 22 June 

BECTU’s LGBT+ Committee will be running a Training & Workshop Day for reps and members on Thursday 22 June 2017 from 10am-4.30pm at our head office in Clapham.

The morning session will be run by Maria Exall and Peter Purton. Maria is an active trade unionist in the CWU who campaigns for rights at work, equality and social justice. Peter Purton was previously the LGBT policy officer at the TUC. Both have extensive experience of working within unions for LGBT equality and with LGBT campaigning organisations in the community.

This session will cover:

• How to campaign for LGBT rights in the workplace
• Building networks (individually and collectively)
• Authenticity at work
• Tackling discrimination and prejudice.

The afternoon session will allow delegates to give input on their experiences at work, with a Q&A session.

The course is open to all reps and members, and we particularly encourage those who identify both as LGBT+ and BAME.

Places are limited and this is an Earlybird offer. Please register here:
