Pride 2024: Hope's Story

To kick off our Pride Month 2024 celebrations, we spoke to Hope Reeves (she/her), Resource Planning Analyst. Hope shares what pride month means to her, the importance of showing support and bringing her whole self to work.

What does Pride Month mean to you?

It’s a time that I can really get comfortable, go to one of the pride events and let my hair down and have a really good time. It’s great seeing the different places change their colours in pride to show allyship!

Why is it important to see organisations, like Nuffield Health support Pride Month?

I’ll be much more likely to want to deal with that organisation, when I was actually looking for work one of the reasons I chose Nuffield Health over another organisation to join WAS because of us showing support

In your personal experience, what has supported you to bring your whole self to work?

There’s genuinely no judgement, my colleagues have always listened to myself, treat me affirmatively, not just in my immediate team but organisation wide!

What’s the most meaningful thing people can do to support the LGBTQ+ community day-to-day?

Just, be an ally. I know it sounds simple but things like speaking out against people being phobic, standing up for people in the LGBTQ+ community even when we aren’t there. It’s really hard at the moment due to the regular badmouthing of the community from the media and in politics and having someone just proudly be an ally means the world to me!
