LGBTQ Pride Month 2019

Blogged by Annie Dutton on 30/05/2019.

June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month

Pride Month has been recognised since 1970, one year after the Stonewall Rebellion which took place on 28 June 1969, commemorating the impact the riots had had on society. There are many events happening nationally but a key event is on Saturday, 1 June with Oxford Pride. Oxford Pride is a celebration of lesbian, gay, bi, trans, intersex and queer life in Oxfordshire and the day has a parade at mid-day followed by lots of entertainment and stalls.

The Careers Service is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion and aims to provide resources and services specifically to meet the varying needs of  its users. There are key resources that you might find useful when trying to work out what the work culture of an organisation might be.
