A new employee resource network is creating a collaborative space to amplify the voices of staff with a disability, those who champion these staff, and staff who care for people living with a disability.
The formation of the Employee Resource Network for Disability was outlined in the district’s Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategy 2020-2022.
The network is a voluntary, employee-led group that will meet monthly following its first meeting this month.
James Stormon, Director of Northern Beaches Hospital Relationships is the executive sponsor of the network on behalf of the NSLHD Executive.
"All staff are welcome to be part of the network – a driving force for access and inclusion," he said.
"We want to learn from people with a lived experience – whether they have a disability or care for someone living with a disability – so we can make it better for them and others."
