About the Scottish Parliament

Diversity networks

Our diverse workforce brings a range of experiences and views, which help us work better.

We know that to have a diverse workforce we need to create a working environment where we value and respect every individual's unique role.

We have 6 diversity networks which provide support to people from diverse groups. Staff can join any network.

The networks are a good way to:

  • connect with people from all over the Parliament
  • build contacts
  • share experiences
  • arrange events
  • socialise

Our networks are:

  • BAME network – offers support, advice and social connection to colleagues from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds
  • Mental Health network – which aims to make talking about mental health easier
  • SPOut LGBT+ network – develops awareness and understanding of the experiences and challenges of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender colleagues
  • YP @ SP – supports young staff members and people who work with young staff members
  • Women's network – an inclusive network run by women, for everyone
  • ParliAble network – supports disabled people
