LGBTQ+ Pride Month
June is Pride Month for the LGBTQ+ community. We’re really proud of the diverse, inclusive culture we create at Advance together with colleagues and customers. Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Group and our Employee Assistance Programme support a diverse workforce and provide information and resources for all colleagues and cusromers.
Our People and Relationships Policy gives guidance on how colleagues can support customers to live the lives they choose.
During Pride month, the LGBTQ+ community celebrates with events that recognise the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world. Pride month is an opportunity to peacefully protest and raise political awareness of current issues facing the community. Parades and marches are a prominent feature of Pride month, and there are many street parties, community events, poetry readings, public speaking, street festivals and educational sessions all of which are covered by mainstream media and attracting millions of participants.
Throughout June, we’ll share stories on social media relating to LGBTQ+ Pride. Click here to find a list of local events.
