Pride and reward

Are you doing what you can for LGBTQI+ talent?

We’ve added the rainbow to our logo for the month of June.  This is to show our allyship with Pride and the LGBTQI+ community.  This is something that is reflected in who we are and the work we do.

Of course, creating inclusive workplaces requires a multi-faceted approach that goes so much further than embracing one of the rainbows.

As a minimum, it’s about understanding the terminology and issues faced by LGBTQI+ colleagues and calling out inappropriate language and behaviour.  

It’s about listening carefully to what people want and need whilst ensuring the onus does not fall on marginalised individuals to educate those with majority status (Dr Jonathan Booth).   

It’s about not making assumptions when we meet new people (Gethin Nadin).  As a gay woman, I particularly resonate with this one.

Here’s my thoughts on what we can do from a pay and reward perspective:

I’m sure there’s more, but these are the kinds of things we’re talking about with clients now.  Are they on your radar?
