Dealing with HIV and making a difference…
My interview with Diversity & Inclusion campaigner and owner of Luminate, Roland Chesters.
Roland graduated in 1981 from the Royal Holloway College, University of London with a degree in Modern Languages, and after a variety of jobs in senior management in the private sector, joined the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as a language-testing specialist.
Following a life-changing diagnosis of HIV and AIDS in 2006, he became a campaigner for diversity and inclusion. He subsequently enjoyed a number of different roles within the FCO as Diversity & Equality Officer and later Learning & Development Adviser and was also elected Chair of the Disabled Staff Network working with the wider Civil Service Disability Network. He is now a self-employed Disability Development Consultant and has his own company, Luminate.
