Celebrating Pride, diversity and inclusion isn’t just for June at CitySprint. As part of our ongoing support of all diversity, we’ve made a £2,000 donation on the behalf of our colleagues to The Diversity Trust.
In 2019 we donated to Galop, who are an anti-violence charity with the mission of making the UK safe, just and fair for the LGBT+ community. This year, we are keen to support a charity with a broader remit – one that campaigns against discrimination in all walks of life. For those of you that may not have heard of the charity, they continuously campaign to create a fairer society.
The Trust’s main social objects are to:
• Promote equality, diversity and inclusion through the elimination of discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of; age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation
• Promote social engagement with equalities communities, groups and individuals. In particular, but not limited to: Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER); Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Questioning (LGBTQ+); Disabled and Learning Disabled; Older and Younger people.
The Diversity Trust look to achieve their goals in a variety of ways, whether it be providing equality, diversity, inclusion and accessibility training and consultancy across England and Wales, or producing powerful short films to influence social change.
We’ve used the Pride 2020 platform to ask colleagues what Pride and diversity at CitySprint means to them:
