Amelia Pereira appointed a Stonewall Workplace role model
28 January 2019
Amelia will help create a workplace where LGBT staff can be themselves, driving performance, engagement and innovation.
Amelia said: "Workplace role models are important because they show that LGBT+ people are real, we hold down jobs and we contribute to our communities and workplaces, just like anyone else. Being LGBT+ still comes with so much stigma, so I'm proud to be trans and in a position to say 'hi, I'm here, I'm normal, just like you!'. I like to think that being openly trans in a team of otherwise cis-gendered people helps to broaden the team’s own understanding of LGBT+ people."
