Pride Now. Pride Forever.
Pride shouldn’t be just a month. It’s a movement. One that should keep going past the end of June. If true progress is going to be made, companies need to put Pride into practice all year, every year. That way, everyone in the LGBTQIA+ community who is in a job, or looking for one, can always feel welcomed.
We Need to Make Pride a Priority
The support for Pride continually grows from many companies and employers. Yet, LGBTQIA+ employees still face numerous challenges in the workplace:
- 35% have not come out in their workplace. [1a]
- 79% have experience of a mental health challenge. 
- 35% who are looking for work right now are worried about being harassed or discriminated against at work due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. [1b]
Take Pride Every Day
As a leader in your organisation, you can make it your company’s responsibility to build an inclusive environment for everyone, such as LGBTQIA+ employees. With the right tools and commitment, every company can make a difference in the workplace.
An inclusive workplace can give employees from diverse backgrounds and lifestyles a sense of belonging, safety and respect for each other. Here’s how you can help build an environment of acceptance to motivate and inspire your company’s culture.
When it comes to talking about challenges surrounding gender at work, it’s vital to know how to respectfully approach such a topic in general, let alone at work. Here’s some guidance on how to engage in meaningful conversations that benefit everyone.
Creating an inclusive workforce starts with understanding the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives. Learn about each action and how you can implement DE&I into your workplace to help improve representation.
