CPS Shortlisted for 2018 Civil Service Diversity & Inclusion Awards

 

The Civil Service has committed to becoming the UK’s most inclusive employer by 2020. The annual Diversity & Inclusion Awards showcase some of the best work going on across the Civil Service to help realise this ambition - from building diversity networks to changing behaviour.

National Black Crown Prosecution Association (NBCPA) / CPS LGBT Network have been nominated for the Championing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex (LGBTI) Inclusion Award. The awards reward inspirational teams and individuals who champion diversity and inclusion.

The National Black Crown Prosecution Association (NBCPA) & the CPS LGBT Network, hosted a conference on ‘Race, Culture, Religion and their impact on access to justice for Black Asian and Ethnic Minority LGBTI people’ was the first of its kind. There were over 100 delegates at the event, half of whom were actually members of the BAME LGBTI community and CJS partners from across the UK. This was significant as even Stonewall said that they find it very hard to engage with the BAME LGBTI community. The event was supported by a holistic cross section of Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnic LGBTI people and groups, as well as Stonewall, GALUP, NAZ & Dave.

The event tackled very sensitive issues such as;

  • Racism within the wider LGBTI community
  • Homophobia and Transphobia generated from faith leaders within BAME communities
  • Support for BAME LGBTI victims of hate crime

The winners will be announced at the Diversity & Inclusion Awards ceremony in October. For more information please visit http://www.diversityandinclusionawards.com/
