Staff from across The Calico Group came together to join in the festivities during this year’s Manchester Mega Mela.
Manchester Mega Mela is the largest celebration of South Asian Culture in the North of England, with music, dance, food, and traditional arts and crafts.
This was the first time The Calico Group had attended the Manchester Mega Mela, and staff found it a great opportunity to promote their services in a fun and welcoming environment.
The Calico Group is passionate about supporting its BAME staff, and has recently launched “This Is Me”, a group which provides a safe space for staff to share their experiences, and to support each other wherever necessary.
Carmel Roberts, Inclusivity Champion for The Calico Group, said:
“This was our first time at Manchester Mega Mela, and we couldn’t have had a better time. The atmosphere was amazing.
“It’s essential for us that all our staff feel valued, regardless of race, gender or sexuality. Attending events like this or local Pride festivals are a perfect opportunity to show that we care.”
