People are key to success at MBNL as we strive to keep our trailblazing position as a great place to work. Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) are naturally high on our agenda, more now than ever – and we know we have some opportunities for positive change in this area.
In our challenge to keep evolving and to keep being an amazing place to work, we need the creativity and strength of every community. Our colleagues value the diversity of MBNL’s culture, and we are committed to continuing to focus on I&D and looking at where we can grow and learn.
Through our Inclusion & Diversity programme, we are busily working to promote and support Inclusion & Diversity at MBNL. To celebrate Pride Month and to show our support for the LGBTQ+ community we will be sharing interesting facts and stories about the Pride movement throughout this month so please watch this space.
Acceptance without exception
June is the month chosen to celebrate pride as it was the month of the Stonewall riots, the protests that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and beyond. It’s about people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, even if in some places there’s still some work to be done
Pride gatherings and celebrations are rooted in the strenuous history of minority groups who have struggled for decades to overcome prejudice and be accepted for who they are.
Although the majority of Pride events are held in June, there are several other events and celebrations that take place throughout other times of the year.
