Broadland sponsors Pride
Broadland Housing Association is proud to announce our sponsorship of the Norwich Pride event which will take place in Norwich on Saturday 30 July 2011. For further information on this event, please visit http://www.norwichpride.org.uk/
Norwich Pride is a celebration of local Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual (LGBT) Life. Everybody is welcome and all of their central events are free and inclusive.
The aim of Norwich pride is to use music, debate, sport, history, arts and entertainment to raise awareness of LGBT issues and to be rid of the discrimination faced by LGBT people.
Their major aim is to ensure that Norwich is a city where everyone feels safe and proud to be themselves.
Broadland Housing Group is also a member of the Norfolk LGB Employee Network Group which offers support to staff and the opportunity to network with other LGB people in the local community.
As part of our commitment to Equality and Diversity and the campaign to stomp out homophobia, Broadland Housing Association has participated in Stonewall Workplace Equality Index survey for the past 3 years and we will continue our participation in 2011.
Who are Stonewall?
Stonewall is a charity that was created in 1989 to fight against homophobia.

What is the Stonewall Diversity Champion programme?
Stonewall's Diversity Champions programme is Britain's good practice forum in which employers can work with Stonewall, and each other, to promote lesbian, gay and bisexual equality in the workplace.
Stonewall's good practice forum presents a unique opportunity for employers to engage with one another on sexual orientation issues.
