We are delighted to be celebrating Pride Month 2021 with our colleagues across the UK from Monday, 21st June - Friday, 25th June through our virtual Learner Experience Platform (LXP).
Pride Month, celebrated in June, is a coming together in love and friendship, celebrating LGBTQ+ communities across the world. Originating from the Stonewall riots during the 1960's which helped to revolutionise gay rights, Pride Month is about teaching tolerance, education in pride history and continuing to move forward in equality.
As is tradition with our internal monthly campaigns, we will have five different themes representing each day, discussing various elements of the LGBTQ+ movement.
The themes are as follows:
Monday - 'The Power of Pride'
Tuesday - 'Igniting Communication'
Wednesday - 'Are you an Ally?'
Thursday - 'Understanding the Communities'
Friday - 'Join the Pride Parade'
Each day will consist of learning material associated with the relevant themes, including; articles, videos, interactive content and much more.
We are also thrilled to be welcoming a guest speaker (or singer...), a transgender Opera singer who will be sharing her experiences as a member of the LGBTQ+ community in the Operatic world, whilst also putting on a few virtual performances for our colleagues.
To end the week off, Staffline will be participating in a group-wide 'Pride Parade', encouraging colleagues (whether members of the LGBTQ+ community, allies or neither) to share photos and videos of their pride celebrations and ultimately creating a 'Pride Parade' compilation video!
We're proud to be supporting such an important and revolutionary cause and our aim for this week is not just to educate and engage our colleagues, but to raise awareness and inspire other businesses to do the same.
Keep an eye out on our social platforms for updates of the week-long event!
