"The Diversity Project is proud to be supporting Pride, and to be working way beyond the month itself to ensure that the investment industry is a place where people can succeed whatever their gender, race, religion or sexuality. It’s important to celebrate progress but also to recognise that we are some way off from the day when women, ethnic minorities and LBTQ+ people can all be honest and themselves at work."
Matt Garvey, Chief Executive at Diversity Role Models commented:
“We are thrilled to be the charity partner for LGBT Great at this year’s Together with Pride event. As a charity committed to ending LGBTQ+ bullying in school, our volunteer role models are often the first confident and out people that pupils meet. Our role models use the power of storytelling to build empathy and kindness towards the LGBTQ+ community making school a more positive and inclusive experience for children who are different. Pride is the pinnacle of LGBTQ+ visibility and inclusivity sending a positive message to young people all over the country that there is nothing more glorious that living life as your true authentic self.”
