Managers Network: IDAHOBiT
Manager Network: 17th May, 10:00-12:00: IDAHOBiT - the international day against homo, bi and transphobia.
Examining our evidence and learning how to create better experiences for Bisexual staff at B&HCC.
IDAHOBiT was created in 2004 to draw attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.
The date of 17 May was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organisation’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.
IDAHOBiT on 17 May is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal. Thousands of initiatives, big and small, are reported throughout the planet across the world. B&HCC will be holding a special session of the Managers Network with the aim raising awareness of the experiences of our bisexual colleagues and of Bi and poly communities across the city.
Hosted & curated by your peers, with guest speaker Marcus Morgan.
The Manager Network meetings are online sessions, lasting up to 120 minutes; introduced and facilitated by your management peers. Each standalone session covers a different topic relevant to managers to help you develop and offer a chance to get together, albeit virtually.
It's a great chance to get away from emails and day to day work to reflect on your own management practice.
All managers (and aspiring managers) are welcome, and you don’t need to have attended any of the previous sessions to be able to come to this one.
- increase your understanding of IDAHOBIT day 17th May
- improve your awareness of bisexual issues and how to support your bisexual staff.
- understand your role as a manager at BHCC in relation to supporting staff
