Staff wearing it purple

Staff across Northern Sydney Local Health District celebrated Wear It Purple Day, an initiative that strives to foster supportive, safe and inclusive environments for young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) people.

This year’s theme ‘Write Your Story’ promotes visibility, community and acceptance whilst encouraging young people to embrace their unique perspectives and to share their stories with others.

Northern Sydney Local Health District Chief Executive Anthony Schembri said NSLHD is committed to understanding our patients’ lived experiences and how it informs their healthcare needs. 

Visible support is an opportunity to showcase our services are safe, supportive, empowering, and inclusive of the LGBTIQ+ community

The district’s Pride+ employee network brings together staff who are LGBTIQ+ and LGBTIQ+ allies to drive positive workplace culture that respects all diversity.  The group meets monthly to discuss practical ways of creating a workplace culture that respects all diversity and is equally inclusive of LGBTIQ+ people.
