The Pride Pledge is a values-based commitment that organisations and individuals can take to demonstrate their dedication to the safety, visibility and inclusion of the rainbow members of their community and workforce, both internally and externally.
We work with you 365 days of the year. We are not an accreditation service but rather a supporting partner – working consistently with our subscribing organisations to incrementally improve their commitment to diversity. Rainbow inclusion is not a destination, but a continuous journey. The work is never done.
While we are a Rainbow Tick affiliate and have a strategic partnership with them, we operate differently. We are not an accreditation service but rather a supporting partner – working consistently with our subscribing organisations to incrementally improve their commitment to diversity. Rainbow inclusion is not a destination, but a continuous journey. The work is never done.
We also offer more options for small businesses and are able to offer services to organisations that neither have the staff or funds to achieve the Rainbow Tick.
Some of our clients require a PDF info pack in order to shop Pride Pledge and our services around their workplace. If this is you, please feel free to download and distribute the brochure below.
