Happy #pridemonth 🏳‍🌈 The history of Pride reminds us how important it is to celebrate what makes us individual and the power of standing together and we feel strongly that all our colleagues should work in an environment where they feel comfortable to be themselves, regardless of their individualities. Now part of the Huws Gray Group, standing together with our colleagues from all over the Group and creating an environment where everyone feels confident to bring their whole selves to work is really important to us. We’re taking steps to educate and inspire our colleagues so join us in celebrating Pride and respecting the LGBTQ+ community not just in June but all year round. #strongertogether #pride #pridemonth #pride2022
