We’re pleased to be showing our support for London Pride this weekend and are marking the occasion with some activities in our London office including an LGBT quiz to raise awareness and money for www.diversityrolemodels.org. We’ve also dedicated a wall in our bistro on which we can all share our thoughts on why #PrideMatters.
We know from the recently published national government survey (National UK LGBT+ survey Government Equalities Office 2018) that clear challenges still exist for LGBT+ people that span many aspects of life. From a workplace perspective, 1 in 5 LGBT+ people said they are not open about their sexual orientation or gender identity with any of their colleagues at the same or lower level, and around a third said they are not open with any senior colleagues, while over half are not open with any customers or clients.
We don’t want Cello Health Insight to become part of these workplace statistics. We want to ensure that we are a company that works for everyone, we value people as individuals and strive to celebrate difference through our continuing focus on Diversity & Inclusion (D&I).
