At the weekend we saw another fantastic turnout at Pride events in Manchester, Walsall and Cornwall taking our Summer of Pride total so far this year to 23 events, with another seven planned between now and October.
As the Senior Director for Talent, Resourcing and Diversity and Inclusion, it is overwhleming to see how our colleagues have driven our Summer of Pride in such a big way this year. There is a saying that ‘Diversity is being invited to the party, Inclusion is being asked to dance’. And boy have you danced!
It has been amazing to see the pictures here on the Green Room and on the @AsdaLGBT Twitter page. Your passion and commitment cannot be mistaken and you have shown our colleagues and customers how important our LGBT community really is to us.
Thanks to everyone who has been involved this year, and for those of you whose Pride celebrations are yet to come, I hope you have a blast. Now we just need to think about how we can top this next year!
