MacIntyre really wants to see you succeed.
Reece describes joining the MacIntyre Diversity Group, and the additional opportunities this has given him to develop and grow, including the creation of videos which demonstrate and celebrate the overall diversity within MacIntyre. He's had opportunities to collaborate with people around MacIntyre.
Reece reflects on growing up as a gay male at a time when Section 28 was still in force, exacerbating prejudice and preventing schools from providing proper support and safeguarding for young LGBTQIA+ people.
Pride is important for all of us, and it's certainly important for MacIntyre. Creating safe spaces, free of discrimination, must be central to everything we do.
