Being Visible in Our Communities

The National Ambulance BME Forum is keen to participate in events that raise awareness of BME communities, their culture and heritage each year. An important part of this is the engagement events at a local level throughout the year, and whist we have had a small presence at events in the past we are keen to increase this going forward. The network is also keen to raise awareness of the lived experiences of our BME communities and hope that in sharing our resources and taking part in events both at a local and national level we can increase our visibility in our communities.

International Women’s Day

On the 8 March every year we celebrate International Women's Day. For 2020 we wanted to mark this day by introducing you to some of the BME women who we’ve met within the Ambulance service and to also share some of our women’s day icons and role models.

You can also visit for more information and for ideas on how will you help forge a gender equal world. There are many ways to get involved, whether it’s being part of an event, talking to someone to raise awareness of gender disparity or read about “women who stood up, spoke out, struggled through, and soared.”
