Ethnic Minority Alliance Network officially launched

Posted on 21 September 2023

The Ethnic Minority Alliance Network was officially launched at an event at Highfields Fire Station on Friday 8 September.

The Network is a space for colleagues from minority ethnic communities and allies to come together for discussions and to learn about different topics affecting the community.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service staff were joined by members of the Fire Authority, the Chief Fire Officer, Black Police Association and the High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire Professor Veronica Pickering.

Attendees heard about how George Floyd's death inspired the formation of the Network, Black history in Britain and around the world, along with a traditional Indian dance performance.

Guninder Nagi, Community Engagement Manager and Chair of the Ethnic Minority Alliance Network, said: "This is such a milestone for the organisation and members of the network.

"We know we have work to do to make the fire and rescue service more representative of the communities we serve and our Network is leading the way on helping make that a reality."

The Ethnic Minority Alliance Network is just one of the employee networks we have to support our staff and make their voice heard, including the LGBT+ Network, Women's Network and Disability Matters Network.
