Pride – not just for June

A panel discussion, exploring why Pride is an everyday of the year commitment, not just an annual tick box event.

Most companies will celebrate Pride during the month of June, but not all companies think about how they can commit to LGBTQ+ inclusion as part of their overall business approach.

LGBTQ+ inclusion is important every day of the year and Pride365 is a global movement empowering organisations to become catalysts for positive and inclusive change by putting a focus on real, actionable and incremental improvement. Their purpose is to make positive change not simply a moral imperative but something that makes financial and performance sense for organisations of all shapes and sizes.   Join us for a webinar on LGBTQ+inclusion in the workplace, where we will host a panel discussion with Jack Mizel, Founder and CEO of Pride365, Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett, EDI Consultant of Inclusiv Ltd. and Jacqui Gavin BEM, Director 5 Senses of Inclusion  There will be a Q&A session at the end.
