Somewhere over the rainbow: Supporting Pride 2020

June 01, 2020

As part of RSK’s wellbeing programme for 2020, we want to recognise the diversity within our global workforce by celebrating Pride month. In support of Pride, we will be changing the colour of our logo throughout June to reflect Pride colours.

Globally, the Pride events provide a platform for the LGBT+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, non-binary, asexual, polysexual, genderqueer and gender variant people) to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues. As an inclusive employer, we want to enable anyone and everyone to participate and fulfil their potential without any stigma attached.

The annual Pride celebrations running throughout June will look a little different this year due to social restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic. Around the world, Pride events, which have become synonymous with colourful marches, festivals and parades, have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean that the celebration of LGBT+ rights is on hold. The first gatherings and marches were originally held to commemorate the Stonewall uprising and riots in New York in June 1969, a pivotal moment in the LGBT+ rights movement.

RSK recognises that for millions of people around the world, Pride celebrations have become their one opportunity each year to come together and feel part of a community and to know they are not alone. For some people in the LGBT+ community, social distancing may also mean staying in a home where they aren’t accepted, where they don’t feel comfortable to be themselves and are cut off from their support network. Now, coming together (albeit virtually) to celebrate Pride and all that it represents is perhaps more important than ever.

As well as changing our logo, we are providing resources where LGBT+ employees can find help and support if they are struggling with their mental health during this time. We also have an internal mental health support network consisting of 71 mental health first aiders and 59 well-being champions, so that everyone always has someone to talk to.
