LGBTQI+

Pride We are committed to creating an inclusive environment for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQI+) professionals and employees. We have developed and implemented LGBTQI+ inclusive policies and resources, including toolkits to help managers understand the challenges that an LGBTQI+ team member may face and the support they can offer.

Supporting our people

Employee resource group: Pride

Our global Pride network engages LGBTQI+ employees and partners across all of our offices. We currently have active chapters in the US, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK and South Africa.

Pride contributes to our diversity and inclusion agenda by encouraging the recruitment, retention and professional development of LGBTQI+ talent, providing guidance on LGBTQI+ inclusive policies and identifying opportunities to participate in volunteering and pro bono initiatives which support the LGBTQI+ community. Pride has also helped us to develop and strengthen relationships with clients through their own LGBTQI+ networks.

Marching for Pride

Many of our Pride chapters around the world participate in LGBTQI+ parades, including Pride in Calgary, Houston, London and Vancouver, Mardi Gras in Sydney and Pink Dot in Hong Kong and Singapore. In Calgary, we are the sole legal partner for the Pride Parade.

Perspectives

Our global Perspectives blog is an interactive way for everyone to join in the diversity and inclusion dialogue. It provides insights, opinions and experiences and encourages discussion, debate and a sense of community. 

Since launching Perspectives, we have published more than 100 blog posts from people sharing their experiences across a range of topics. See below for a selection of them.
