"I am hugely proud of our 'Hi-Viz' LGBTQ+ Affinity Network and all that has been achieved within our business and industry. As a network, we aim to uplift, acknowledge and empower LGBTQ+ colleagues working across our business. Also, through education and awareness, we work to encourage a positive culture where everyone can be their true self, no matter how they identify.
As someone who themselves considered whether the construction industry would be right for them and accepting of who they are, it is so encouraging to see the steps that the business and the network are taking. From sponsoring local Pride events to visual allyship identifiers and so much more, there is a wonderful appetite to support everyone in any way possible. It's refreshing and rewarding and 100% the right thing to do."
