  • Meaning and background of Pride
  • Positive stories about LGBTQ+ equality globally
  • Stories where LGBTQ+ people continue to face discrimination and violence
  • The Bibby logo once again became rainbow for the month
  • A competition to #ShowYourColoursforPride where teams wore bright clothes or colourful backgrounds and took screen shots. The winning team won 2 hours each to take time out for themselves
  • Updates via colleague briefings
  • Colleagues interacted and shared stories on Yammer
  • Sharing Pride related elearning on B Hive

Suzanne Cousens, Head of Inclusion & Engagement, said “Although we couldn’t be together in person this year, it was fantastic to see the engagement of our colleagues through the celebration of Pride with some fantastic photos shared via Yammer. In fact it was some of highest engagement we’ve seen!”

“Thanks to Kate Jackson and Dawn Hardman who made this event really interactive, fun and informative. This truly supports the Compass vision for People – We celebrate, respect and value all our colleagues for who they are and what they do.”
