Building Equality March at London Pride

Many members have launched LGBT+ networks to foster inclusion in their own companies, and over the next year Building Equality will focus on driving change; not just through main contractors but through the supply chain. The ambition is to reduce the stress and anxiety amongst the LGBT+ community by creating an inclusive atmosphere, allowing people’s talents and skills to grow and flourish.

“It’s fantastic that this year we have more senior leaders than ever before taking part in the parade, showing that it’s no longer down to employee networks alone. We’re beginning to see LGBT+ inclusion not only supported but in some cases driven from the top.”

Jo Hennessey

#BuildingEquality and WSP Network Committee Member

“Pride means a great deal to our Kier LGBT+ community and we are immensely proud to be supporting them at London Pride. Pride matters because it gives the industry the opportunity to drive diversity and inclusion alongside our construction partners at #BuildingEquality. Only when we come together as an industry can we promote true change and improve the working lives of all our employees, LGBT+ and non LGBT+ alike.”

Steven Woodward

Chair

Kier LGBT+ and Allies Community

Since the millennium we have seen a more positive outlook on legal rights for employees who recognise themselves as part of the LGBT+ community. In 2010 the Equality Act became law in the UK, making it illegal to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the workplace.

UK Connect works with the construction industry and looks towards a better and brighter future.
