Celebrating diversity at Spring Conference in Birmingham
On Saturday 13 March, members and supporters of DELGA, the Lib Dem lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender campaign group, joined forces with Ethnic Minority Liberal Democrats, Campaign for Gender Balance, Women Liberal Democrats, and Lib Dem Disability Association to hold a reception to celebrate and promote the equalities agenda within the party.
Representatives shared about the achievements made to date by our organisations and their plans for the future. Encouraged by the party's National Diversity Advisor, Issan Ghazni, and ably assisted by the Diversity officer, Vicky Booth, the groups are able to share best practice and ensure that the Party is leading on all fronts.
Vince Cable MP, Chair of the Diversity Engagement Group subsequently reported back to the Conference on the progress that has been made in these areas including the appointment of regional diversity champions.
