June is Pride month and we’re delighted to see all the great ways that the LGBT+ community and allies are coming together online to celebrate and show support.
We’re excited to take our support of Pride online this year as well. Pride month offers an opportunity for us to come together, learn and come up with ideas for how we can better support LGBT+ equality, leadership and career progression throughout the year.
For the month of June, we’re using our William Fry pride logo on all our social channels and as part of the signature on all our emails. We’ve also put our diversiFry pride logo on our homepage.
Later this month our diversiFry network is hosting an interview with Tiernan Brady, award winning LGBT+ activist and Head of Inclusion at Clifford Chance, and our teams will be taking part in a virtual Pride Run to raise money for BeLonG To Youth Services.
The OUTLaw Network has also put together a great schedule of events. We’ve included them below along with links to register.
