John Dickinson Chair of Network

John Dickinson
Welcome to Out at Tesco – my name is John Dickinson and I am the Stores Implementation Manager within Tesco Bank. I took over as the chair of Out at Tesco at the end of 2013 from Amanda Sawkins and Ian Sladden.

I am so proud of the achievements we’ve made as a network since we began in 2009. We are one of the largest employee network’s of it’s type in the UK, with over 1,000 members across the Tesco Group. We were also nominated for Outstanding Employee Network of the Year in the 2013 European Diversity Awards and LGBT Network of the Year in the G3 & Out Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards, testimony to the success of the network.

Out at Tesco truly is a great asset to the LGBTI Community, supporting over 13 Pride Events throughout the UK during 2013 and supporting a number of local community initiatives including the Lodon Titan’s LGBT Football Club. We really do make what matters better, together in the LGBTI community.

We’ve got some really exciting plans for the year ahead and we can’t wait to share these with you – make sure you follow us on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest news and information from Out at Tesco.

Thanks,
John Dickinson
Chair of Out at Tesco
