“At BCS Consulting, we strive to create a truly inclusive and safe work environment for everyone and are proud to be celebrating Pride month this year (albeit slightly differently to previous years!).
32% of LGBTQ+ employees in the UK experienced or witnessed negative behaviour towards themselves or other LGBTQ+ colleagues in the past year. Shocking statistics like these only emphasise why Pride month, and raising awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, is still vitally important in workplaces across the country and beyond.
Our LGBTQ+ Network has been working to help educate ourselves and the wider community of issues that affect LGBTQ+ individuals as well as continuing to support positive changes across the business and inputting into the 2030 Vision for BCS. Across the month, we are looking forward to holding a virtual Pride celebration and learning sessions in the coming weeks.
Pride month is a fantastic opportunity to not only take stock of the great progress we have made in this area but also to look at where we can continue to grow and further support the LGBTQ+ community at BCS.”
