17 May = IDAHOBIT

17 May, 2021

17 May marks International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.

Today over 100 countries around the world acknowledge and condemn the discrimination and violence that the LGBTQIA+ community continues to experience. The day celebrates the progress we have made and highlights the significant amount of work we have to do to reach equality.

Clarity Group supports and stands along side our LGBTQIA+ staff and customers; today and everyday.

The Group has embraced sexual and gender diversity internally (from hiring processes and policies to awareness programs and communication preferences) and are actioning a three phase plan updating client service delivery processes to embrace the community. Further, our Digital team continue to focus on building inclusive products which position us as leaders in this space.

Our upcoming awareness training and donations to Minus18 is another small step forward to improving our awareness.

We encourage our team to show their support in their own way, as they feel comfortable, but not just today at all times. It goes without saying we will continue to maintain our high standard of respectful behaviour and zero tolerance to actions outside our values, like derogatory remarks. For those in your team wanting to express their support outwardly in the office and around the community, the Clarity Group will sponsor purchases for each team member from the Minus18 shop anytime throughout the year.

I look forward to the next 12 months and working alongside our brilliant team to do carry out plans in the space of equality.
