The Importance of Pride
Pride is about celebrating differences, standing in solidarity, and promoting allyship. The Pride movement, with its roots in political activism, has gained considerable traction and is now celebrated all over the world. A common barrier to engagement in LGBT+ DE&I, however, is the fear of ‘getting it wrong’ and making a mistake. Given the prominence and externality of Pride celebrations and events, this is particularly true during Pride Month. Whether this is due to a lack of available information or accidentally saying the wrong thing, many employees shy away from the conversation because they do not feel there is a ‘safe space’ to make a mistake. LGBT Great is working to help break down this stereotype within financial services.
Join this Member-exclusive webinar with LGBT Great to explore these themes and discover an eye-opening background on the Importance and Impact of Pride.
- The language of Pride.

The session draws on behavioural science and inclusion theory, brought to life through best practice examples and member testimonials. LGBT Great also offers the opportunity to highlight a member of your existing executive leadership team during the introduction of the session. This helps to situate the session in the context of your organisation and enables us to support a visible sponsor or leader to engage directly with this conversation. A pre-session / debrief is offered to the executive prior to the final delivery.
