On 20 May 2019 BAME Recruitment held a Workplace Well-being Evening, superbly hosted by Reward Gateway. Our fantastic panel spoke eloquently and openly about mental ill-health, including some inspirational personal stories and practical ways for managers and employees to foster supportive and inclusive workplaces. Huge thanks to Dorcas Gwata, Rob Stephenson, Manish Tayal MBE and Gavin Young for participating. Also, a very big thank you to Tom Bushnell who generously donated a piece of his artwork in our silent auction to raise money for the Matt Palmer Trust, a brilliant charity whose goal is to support the mental well-being of people of all ages in the UK and Ireland.
Attendee comments included:
“A great night that dealt with a sensitive topic head-on and with compassion.”
“I was nervous to attend but the organisers welcomed me, and the speakers were all great and really open.”
“I found the night really helpful and it was great to see other people going through similar challenges and speaking about them so openly.”
