Outsource Training and Development commemorates National LGBT+ History Month this February.
The overall aim of LGBT+ History month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public.
This is done by:
- Increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (“LGBT”) people, their history, lives and their experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community;
- Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT+ community;
- Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT+ communities; and
- Promoting the welfare of LGBT+ people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBT+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.

Next month, the theme will be based on International Women’s Month. If you have any ideas or suggestions for inclusion, or if you want to produce some work to be included in the display, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
