QIC’s QPride network brings together our colleagues who are allies of, or who identify as, members of the LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and all other diversities) community. QPride aims to:

– champion an inclusive work environment that is free from prejudice or discrimination for our LGBT+ employees;

-create a safe space and working environment for QIC’s LGBT+ employees and allies who may require support or have friends and family that need support;

-provide a voice for QIC’s LGBT+ employees;

-raise awareness of and celebrate the diversity of our LGBT+ community through a number of events and initiatives throughout the year, and;

-further educate our people on LGBT+ related issues through information dissemination and support services

The network is supported by the QPride Committee, a sub-group of the QIC Diversity and Inclusion Committee, with two (2) Executive Sponsors. The Committee is responsible for shaping QIC’s LGBT+ agenda and driving the network’s activities.

April Neylan

Retail Business Analyst – GRE IM Retail and QPride committee member

As an out and proud QIC employee and member of QPride, I have always felt comfortable to be who I am at work without fear of repercussions or judgement. QIC fosters an incredibly inclusive culture in which diversity and difference is celebrated and supported across the entire business; a culture of which I am extremely proud of. As a founding committee member of QPride, QIC’s LGBT+ network, I have been both humbled and heartened by the level of support received across the business from the amazing people I am fortunate enough to call my colleagues. The future is bright and QIC is certainly shining a light on the importance of a supportive, inclusive and diverse working environment.

Philip Jackson

HR Manager, Chair of QPride, QIC’s LGBT+ committee and network and committee member of QIC’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

As an openly LGBT+ identifying employee of QIC, I feel that I can be who I am, and bring my whole and true self to work each and every day. This is enabled through our great culture, and the work that QIC does within Diversity & Inclusion not just within the LGBT+ space, but in all aspects. It is due to the amazing culture at QIC, that I felt comfortable to launch QPride (QIC’s LGBT+ committee and network) in 2019.

Groups such as QPride within our business, promote a safe space and working environment, a voice to our LGBT+ employees, education for our workforce, and also raises awareness and celebrates the diversity of our LGBT+ community.
