As the UK celebrates 50 years of the Pride movement, as an organisation we’re proud to be supporting Pride Month. We’re celebrating diversity, inclusivity, individuality, respect and unity not just across Hyde, but across our communities.
As part of the celebrations, our staff network group PRYDE - for our LGBTQ+ colleagues and allies - have been involving colleagues in learning more about Pride Month and what it means for both colleagues and our customers.
We’ve also decorated our offices with Pride decorations as we join in the celebrations, including proudly displaying the rainbow flag – the Progress Pride flag – in our main boardroom at our London Bridge office.
Guy Slocombe, Hyde’s Chief Investment Officer and sponsor for PRYDE said: “I’m proud to be part of an organisation that engages with and supports the LGBTQ+ community and I’m delighted that we are taking part in Pride Month. This is a great opportunity to support our friends, colleagues and customers in the LGBTA+ community. It’s also a great way to learn, have fun and celebrate our differences and diversity.
“At Hyde, we’re determined to provide an environment where everyone can be themselves, or bring their ‘authentic self to work’, helping us better engage with the diverse communities and stakeholders that we work with every day.”
We’re also proud to be supporting Canterbury Pride, on Saturday 11 June. We’re delivering more homes in the Canterbury area, so supporting Canterbury Pride demonstrates how we support the local community and celebrate inclusivity in the area. Find out more about the event and how you can get involved on their website – Canterbury Pride.
Pride Month runs from 1 to 30 June.
