Celebrating LGBT+ History Month
Taking place throughout February, the aim is to improve the visibility and welfare of LGBT+ people and, in doing so, create a better society for everyone. Similar celebrations occur in October for Australia, the US and Canada.
To acknowledge and show our support for LGBT+ History Month, JustLike-Q, one of our employee-led networks, has been hosting a series of ‘Ask Us Anything’ sessions to give our people the opportunity to connect with one another and ask questions relating to LGBT+.
Our JustLike-Q network strives to: promote diversity and inclusion; educate, share knowledge and encourage best practice within QineitQ; provide support for colleagues across the business; and contribute to and influence company policy for diversity and inclusion to help ensure LGBTQ+ needs are taken into account.
Alongside this, we have also shared an internal blog with our people on the history of the LGBT+ community, the challenges faced and the changes that have been achieved.
We’re also proud to be a founding member of Pride in Defence, a network of LGBT+ groups from across the UK defence industry. Through close collaboration with other Pride in Defence members, we are helping to promote diversity and inclusion throughout the entire defence sector.
Creating a workplace where everyone can be their authentic self and where our differences are seen to make us stronger is hugely important to QinetiQ. We’re proud to celebrate LGBT+ History Month as part of this effort.
